Robert F. McKee: pension credit for service while teaching at Louisburg College, 

1952-1953. 

Albert F. Fisher: one-half year Approved Supply Service 1954. 

James E. Smith: three years Approved Supply Service 1957-1960. 

Norwood L. Jones: one year service 1950. 

John M. Chne: one-ihalf year Approved Supply Credit 1946. 

Wesley G. Brogan was ai>pointed "Student" at last Conference. Therefore, he is to 
>ceive i>ension credit without the Board of Education making payments of $768.00. As 
lyment was made, the Board will make the refund. 

We recommend that Carl Calloway be given one-half year's credit for the Confer- 
ice year 1967-1968, since his ministry in this Conference was discontinued in January 

)68. 

We recommend that J. B. Eskridge not be given credit for 1967-1968 for his appoint- 
ent "Student" as he was not enrolled in school. 

We recommend that D. D. Holt be given four years credit for service he gave while 
rving as Executive Director of the Methodist College Foundation of North Carolina 

61-1955. 

We recommend that J. W. Scott be given one-half year's credit for 1967-1968 as he 
rved in a capacity "without annuity credit upon the Conference" for part of that year. 

We recommend that William A. Ruth be given pension credit for 1967-1968, as he 
is under episcopal appointment in this Conference. This corrects the Board of Pension's 
port in the 1967 Journal which recommends he be appointed without annuity claim 
1 on the Conference. 

We recommend Mrs. Hugh W. Prince, widow of the late Rev. O. W. Dowd, be re- 
i 'tated for pension, with payment to be made on the rate of 39 years of service. 

We recommend that Mrs. Gordon Casey, widow of the late Rev. H. A. Chester, be 
J nstated for i)ension, with payment to be made on the rate of 27.50 years of service. 

We recommend that Nelson P. Edens be paid on the basis of 40.75 years of service.

North Carolina Annual Conference 



ROBERT WALLACE BRADSHAW 



1900-1967 




Robert Wallace Bradshaw was pre-eminently a pastor. He came rightfully by t 
pastor heart for he inherited it from his father "Dr. Mike" Bradshaw, whom at lej 
one preacher remembers with gratitude for the helpfulness which "Dr. Mike" gave 
him as he prepared to enter the ministry. This deep ai 
steady pastoral concern served as a bond between fath 
and son. It is an interesting coincidence that both join 
the North Carolina Annual Conference at the sar 
place, Greenville: "Dr. Mike" in 1891 and his son 
1935. 

Robert was born in Norfolk, Virginia, on July 
1900. He received the A.B. degree from Trinity Colle 
and the M.A. from Columbia University. Following tl 
academic preparation, he was principal of Lakewoi 
School in Durham for two years, then of the Childrei 
Home School in Winston-Salem for nine years. Follo' 
ing appointments at Jenkins Memorial Church in 
leigh, where he ministered to members of the Childrei 
Home there, and in Tarboro, he became Executive S( 
retary for the North Carolina Conference Board of Ec 
cation for eight years. It was in these years that seve 
generations of young people came to know and Ic 
him as "Uncle Bobby." Many of them will still rememb 
his pitching form in the softball games in the assembhes at Louisburg College. I| 
threw a "slow floater" which arched high in the air, then dropped deceptively acre 
the plate, so that the batter's swing was usually about a foot too high or too low. Becau 
he understood and loved them and shared their fun, he could speak to the deept! 
needs of their hearts. 

Following this period he served as pastor at Jarvis Memorial Church at Greenvi'; 
for five years. First Church, Wilson, ten years, and Duke Memorial, Durham, sevi 
years. In February, 1959, he became a trustee of Duke University succeeding Bishij 
Walter W. Peele, and faithfully and effectively served as a member of the buildiij 
committee during a period of the University's rapid physical growth. Everywhere 
went he seemed to find persons he had known in other places, and everywhere so 
added to them new friends who learned to love and depend on him. Especially in t 
hospitals he ministered to friends, or families of friends, who came from far and wdc 
Watching how he spent himself in this ministry one wondered how long he cou 
continue. Finally, as the date of his retirement approached, he accepted a call to retu 
to Wilson as Minister of Visitation. But he did not retire. When he died on July i 
1967, he was in his study preparing for the day's work. 

Funeral ser\'ices were conducted by the Reverend Charles S. Hubbard, minister 
First Methodist Church, Wilson, and the Reverend Lynwood Blackburn of New Yoi 
Interment was in Maplewood Cemetery, Wilson. 

He is survived by his wife, Frances Wiggins Bradshaw, and three sons: Rob< 
Wallace, Jr., attorney in Charlotte; Francis Connor, pastor in the North Carolina Go 
ference; and Michael James, school principal in Durham. So the tradition of servi 
moves from one generation to another and there are a host of those who try to sha 
with others the love he so unstintingly gave to them.

CLAUD DALTON NELSON 

1889-1967 

A native of Arkansas, Claud Nelson was born near Jacksonville, July 13th, 1889, 
n of the Reverend Charley Hestor Nelson and Sara See Nelson. 

He received his formal education at Hendrix College and at Oxford University, 

England, where he was the fourth Rhodes Scholar from 

Arkansas. Later he finished a correspondence course in 

y^* #*%^ Theology at Emory University and was admitted to 

f Tit membership in the North Carolina Conference, thus 

'^ becoming the fifth Methodist minister in direct Nelson 

line of descent. 

Though he never served a pastorate, he was proud 
of his membership in this Conference, and was grateful 
to his Bishops for appointments to his work with the 
Fellowship of Reconciliation in the South and to the 
Young Men's Christian Association both in this country 
and abroad. His YMCA work for prisoners of war took 
_^^^ ^^^^ him to Russia in 1916-1917, and later to Germany. He 
.^riflC 1IH^,^^^^I ^^^ loaned by the YMCA to the Swiss Student Christian 
gM^^H tT ^^^^^m Movement for work vdth foreign students in Switzer- 
^^^^H^ ^^^^^B land, 1920-1921 and was decorated by the Yugoslav 
If^^^^V ^^^ ^^^^^^1 government of that period for his work with Yugoslavs 
MHHF Jb JIHH^B studying in Switzerland. 

He had several terms of service for the YMCA in 
I ly, (luring which time he worked toward equal status and responsibility of Protestant 
1 Hdinan Catholic Laymen in the YMCA. This policy became an international policy 
tli( YMCA in 1950. 
After retirement from the YMCA, Dr. Nelson became Executive Director of the 
I partinent of Religious Liberty of the National Council of Churches, 1953-1960. At 
■ tiin<> of his death he was serving as consultant to the National Conference of Chris- 
is .ind Jews. It was during this service that he immediately recognized the potential 
iim nical import of the announcement in 1959 of Pope John XXHI that he would 
:! the second Vatican Council. Serving as reporter for Religious News Service he 
^an a study of preparations being made for the Council, making trips to Rome in 
151 and 1962. He wrote articles for Catholic and Protestant publications and a book, 
:ilislied in October, 1962, on "Tlie Vatican Council and all Christians." He reported 

I fniir sessions of the Council for Religious News Service. 

C;()llaborating with Dr. Stanley I. Stuber, Baptist minister and Director of Associa- 
1 Pifss, he was coeditor of "Implementing Vatican II in Your Community," a dialogue 

I I action manual in which they "examine the sixteen documents promulgated by the 
; mcil, tell how these are interpreted by various Christian bodies and suggest interfaith 
livities that will point the way to true Christian brotherhood." 

Dr. Nelson was editor of Tlie Dialogue, a publication of the National Conference 
)Cliristian and Jews. His book "Religion and Society: The Ecumenical Impact" was 
))lislied in 1966. It deals with religious liberty, church state relations, anti-Semitism, 
ual problems, taxation of church property, and related subjects. He wTote: 

"In problem after problem, controversy after controversy, we have found the 
; llenge for all men of faith to coordinate their search for true insights and promising 
utions, and to unite their efforts. So united, they -will be able to enlist also the 
» ilarists who share their concern and their aims — or to give effective support if 
( ilarists have already taken the lead." 

He died in New York City, October 25, 1967, and was buried in Princeton, New 
' fv. He is survived by his widow, the former Maud Sparks of Fordyce, Arkansas; a 
" nKcr brother, McDonald See Nelson, Assistant Manager, National Lead of Ohio; 
( - sons, Claud Dalton, Jr., member of The Society of Brothers; James Sparks, Consul- 
; , I'roducts Safety, General Electric Company; John Charles, Chairman of the 
tian Department, Columbia University; Joseph Edward, Professor of Mathematics, 
* K (ton University. There are ten grandchildren. 

Leaders of all faiths participated in a Memorial Service sponsored by the National 



166 North Carolina Annual Conference 

Conference of Christian and Jews and held in the Chapel at Interchurch Center ii 
New York City. Messages praised him as an ecumenical pioneer, a lifelong worker fo 
peace, defender of the rights of minority groups, a "saintly man whose irenic dispositio] 
frequendy channeled difficult and tense inter-religious issues into positive and construe 
tive action." 

The Christian Century in an editorial tribute in its issue of November 15, IQ&i 
referred to "Claud Nelson — servant to mankind."

WILLIAM JAMES UNDERWOOD 

1880-1968 

"Blessed are the poor in spirit . . . Blessed are the meek . . . Blessed are the pui 
in heart." These three Beatitudes of our Lord were distinguishing characteristics c 
Brother W. J. Underwood. Since he was pastor of my home church for teri years an 
since he lived out his days of "retirement" near ml 
home, I was privileged to know him intimately and t 
feel the mfluence of his Christlike spirit over a period c 
many years. 

Bom in Roseboro, N. C, on July 25, 1880, Brothe 
Underwood received his initial preparation for the Mir 
istry in an occupation of hard work. He labored as 
lumberman and a farmer before accepting his first pa; 
toral appointment in The Methodist Church on Marc 
24, 1919, at Shallotte, North Carolina. This training w£ 
most appropriate and helpful for his future ministry, f( 
God called him to the service largely of hard-workin 
farmers. He wore the badge of rural minister, a circu 
rider in the tradition of the early Methodist preacher 
with dignity, joy, and honor. His was a fruitful ministr' 
though he never served what the world calls "largi 
fields of service" or "the most important churches." 

The charges which Brother Underwood served, ; 
addition to Shallotte, were the following: Elizabetl 
town, Swansboro, Newton Grove, Pasquotank Circuit, Columbia, Goldston, Mt. Gilea 
Circuit, and Bobbins Circuit. It is noteworthy that he served Elizabethtown on tw 
different occasions, that he served the Goldston Charge for ten years, and the Robbir 
Circuit for eight years. He retired from the Bobbins Circuit in 1953, and chose to li' 
the remaining years of his life in Bonlee, North Carolina. 

Brother Underwood was married to Blanche Johnson of Marion, South Carolina, 
January 10, 1906. Mrs. Underwood was a partner with her husband in his life ai 
ministry in a depth of understanding and love seldom matched on this earth. She 
still living in Bonlee. In addition, Brother Underwood is survived by a son, Alton ' 
Underwood, Summit, New Jersey; and two daughters, Mrs. W. J. Clark of Bonlee, ai 
Mrs. J. Lane Perry of Roseboro. 

It can be truthfully said of Brother Underwood that he was a pastor of surpassii 
compassion, a preacher of quiet but deep insight, and a person of saintly character. I 
was the good shepherd who befriended and sought the sheep of God's Back Pasture, ai 
who built up the Church in faith, hope, and love. Brother Francis Bradshaw, past 
at Bonlee at the time of Brother Underwood's death, has paid this beautiful tribute I 
him: 

Rev. W. J. Underwood died at Chatham Hospital, Siler City, North 
Carolina, on January 2, 1968, at the age of eighty-seven. He was a retired 
member of the North Carolina Conference. He was a devoted husband, a i 

loving father, a loved grandfather. He was a dear friend. He was a son of , 

God. I 

He was a retired minister who never retired. He gave himself to those i 

around him in such a way that his ministry was felt by all those whose I 

good fortune it was to know him. Perhaps his most profound ministry was ' 




Journal of Proceedings 167 

performed during his long illness and confinement, for he never ceased to 
bring comfort, cheer, and inspiration to all those who shared with him the 
days in the hospital. 

He was a husband, devotedly, for 63 years to his precious wife, 
Blanche, who has had a meaningful ministry herself, and who continues in 
that ministry, being a blessing to all who know her. 

He loved his children, cared for them, worried about them, helped 
them whenever he could, and provided for them a priceless earthly example 
of what God, as Father, must be like. His grandchildren adored him. He 
was easy to adore. And he loved them in return. There was a bond be- 
tween them that was rare, considering the difference in ages. The bond is 
still there. 

He was a dear friend. He was my dear friend. He wanted for me the 
best that God had put in me. He wanted me to live up to the "image of 
God" in which I was created. He helped me to see the value of my life — 
indeed, of all life. He helped me to become a friend of his, so he could 
become a friend of mine. He didn't tell me this. He didn't have to. He 
showed me by being a friend. 

Truly, he was a son of God. He was created in the "image of God." 
He sought out that image, discovered it, followed after his Savior, daily, 
and lived like Him. He was a man's son, of course, but truly he became 
a son of God. Certainly he became the man that God created him to be — 
and that is what a son of God is — and does.

ELI CARSON MANESS 

1891-1968 

Rev. Eli Carson Maness was bom June 25, 1891, near Robbins, N. C, and died 
at Fuquay Springs, N. C, January 17, 1968, at the age of 76 years, six months and 
23 days. He was one of thirteen children born to Lewis and Martha Maness, and one 
of two sons of the family to enter the Methodist minis- 
try in the North Carolina Conference. Having joined 
the annual conference in 1917 he was an effective 
preacher of the gospel and a faithful pastor for 50 
years, serving in the active ranks for 39 years, and as 
an honored retired member for 11 years. 

He graduated from the Robbins High School and 
attended Rutherford College in preparation for his min- 
istry. He was a hard worker, giving himself to constant 
study; he was a good preacher, seeking to win people 
to Christ and his church; he was a faithful and under- 
standing pastor, who visited his people and entered 
sympathetically into their sorrows as well as their joys; 
he was a congenial and loyal friend who won the con- 
fidence of people through his love for them and his 
genuine devotion to his calling. Perhaps the truest 
thing that could be said of E. C. Maness is "He was 
a good man." 

He served the following charges: Cokesbury, Gold- 
ston, Person Street, Fayetteville, Bailey, Fuquay Springs, Northampton, Rose Hill, 
Chadbourn, Brooksdale, Pittsboro, Apex, Walstonburg, and was serving as a supply 
pastor of Elizabeth Church in Goldsboro District at the time of his death. 

He was married July 4, 1912, to Miss Annie Covington of Rockingham, N. C. 
Besides his vddow he is survived by four sons: Lewis Maness, of Franklinton, Mass.; 
E. C. Maness, Jr., of Newport, N. C; Albert Maness, of Roanoke, Va.; Ivey Maness, 
of Asheboro, N. C; two daughters: Mrs. Margaret Husel, of Edmonton, Alberta, 
Canada; Miss Rubv Ann Maness, of Gastonia, N. C. There are 16 grandchildren; one 




168 North Carolina Annual Conference 

sister, Mrs. Spinks Kennedy, of near Bobbins; four brothers — John and Hobart Maness 
of near Robbins, Rev. W. L. Maness of Siler City, and Rufus Maness of Durham. 

Funeral services vi^ere held at the Fuquay Springs Methodist Church, which was 
built during his pastorate there. This writer heard him say that he left some of his blood 
in that church, having labored in handling brick and other materials until his hands 
literally bled. He was a leader in a number of building programs where he served, and 
always tried to leave a charge in better condition than he found it. 

The funeral service was in charge of his district superintendent, Dr. Leon Russell, 
assisted by Rev. G. W. Crutchfield, pastor of the church, and Rev. S. J. Starnes of 
Burlington, a long-time intimate friend of the family. Burial was in the Tabernacle 
Church cemetery at Robbins, which was his home church. In charge of the service at 
the cemetery were Rev. S. J. Starnes and Rev. C. H. Mewbom. 

This good man had strong religious convictions, and he never compromised with 
evil. His consecration was never questioned, and no one was able to speak an incrimi- 
nating word against his character. He enjoyed the confidence of the people whom he 
served as well as of all his brethren in the conference who knew him personally and 
appreciated him for what he was. He never sought preferment, but accepted his assign- 
ments at the hands of the appointive powers and sought to do his best wherever he 
was sent. 

He leaves behind him his loved ones, together with a host of friends who will 
cherish his memory until they meet him again in the land of the redeemed.

WILLIAM ELMER HOWARD 

1895-1968 

Reverend William Elmer Howard, son of William J. Howard and Betty Asbury 
Howard, was bom April 10, 1895, in Denver, North Carolina, in Lincoln County. 
Death came February 3, 1968, at Wayne Memorial Hospital, Goldsboro, North Caro- 
lina. Funeral services was held February 5, 1968, in the 
Chapel of Tyndall Funeral Home, Mount Olive, N. C, 
by Rev. Harley Owens, Rev. Leon Russell and Ben O. 
Merritt. His body was laid to rest in the Wayne Me- 
morial Park, Goldsboro, N. C. 
i ^B Brother Howard attended public school in Denver, 

l^fi^ <|yii3pMn| N. C, his home town. Fiuther preparation was made at 

Mfm 7 1^ ^m Rutherford College and Lenoir ^Rhyne College at Hick- 

^^ ory, N. C. He served overseas in the first world war 

and at his death was a member of the American Legion 
at Benson, N. C. He taught school for twelve years 
before entering the ministry. 

On December 21, 1920, he was married to Miss 
Bessie Belle Havner. To this union one daughter was 
born, Jaunita Howard, who is now Mrs. J. C. Stephen- 
son of Mount Olive, N. C. This was a wonderful marital 
relation where the deepest love abounded. In this home 
devotion and loyality to Christ was manifested in every 
hand. They were truly workers together with God. 
At the Durham District Conference in 1938 brother Howard was licensed to 
preach. That fall at the Annual Conference he was appointed as Approved Supply 
Pastor to the Seven Springs Charge, where he served two years. In the fall of 1940 he 
joined the North Carolina Conference at Wilmington, N. C, in which he served the 
following charges — Mount Olive Circuit, Trenton, Fremont, Eastover in Fayetteville, 
Carthage and Benson. In 1961 he took the retired relationship, after which he served 
as pastor of tlie Woodland Church in the Goldsboro District for three years. 

Brother Howard was a jovial friendly person who made friends easily. It can be 
truthfully said that everyone who knew him was his friend. He was a faitliful devoted 
servant of Christ, who ne\'cr served a Charge in the North Carolina Conference that 
was not improved by his faithful service. He loved the following poem by Alfred 




Journal of Proceedings 169 

Tennyson very much. I am sure it contains the message which he would leave to his 
loved ones and friends. 

Sunset and evening star, 

and one clear call for me! 
And may there be no moaning of the bar, 

When I put out to sea. 
But such a tide as moving seems asleep, 

Too full for sound and foam. 
When that which drew from out the boundless deep 

Turns again home. 
Twilight and evening bell. 

And after that the dark! 
And may there be no sadness of farewell, 

When I embark; 
For tho' from out our bourne of time and place 

The flood may bear me far, 
I hope to see my Pilot face to face. 

When I have crossed the bar.

WILLIAM TAYLOR PHIPPS 

1881-1968 

The Rev. William Taylor Phipps passed away at the Mathiesen Clinic in Pittsboro, 
Slorth Carolina, March 21, 1968, after several months of declining health. He was 87 

:s old. 
" Although a native of Towsen, Maryland, he had 

I g U^ 1 ^^H served the Pittsboro circuit for a number of years prior 
jj^^MMjjKtl jK to his retirement and returned to Pittsboro as his

■■ IflH Southern Oil Company at Savannah, Georgia. 

Ill , '^ J^HB However, he heard the call to the ministry and 

PW ''- ,^^^^B '^^^^ '^'^ father's objections, decided to enter Vanderbilt 

Jt 4^^^H University to prepare himself for the ministry. He spent 

^J^ ^^^^^m four years at Vanderbilt and then rehirned to the South 

f/BBm ^^ ^^^H Georgia Conference where he served for three years. 
Hj^^^ ^V j^^^H He joined the North Carolina Conference in 1907; 

H^^^^ flT m^^^M was ordained deacon, in 1909; and elder in 1911. 
iHHHk ■■k JIHH In North Carohna Mr. Phipps served the following 

churches: Elm City, Swan Quarter, Spring Hope, Fre- 
lont, Perquimans Circuit, Pasquotank Circuit, Bethel, Whiteville, Rich Square, Litde- 
m, Mebane, Norlina, and Pittsboro. 

When in Pittsboro he served the old Pittsboro circuit composed of Pittsboro 
lethodist. Browns Chapel, Hickory Mountain, Pleasant Hill and Chatham Church. He 
•tired after 43 years of service in 1949. He was a strong, robust man physically. Ever 
illing to do the work of the Lord, he returned to the conference in 1954 and served 
1954-55 at Roper, N. C, and the Ebenezer Church in Chatham County. He retired 
second time and moved to Durham. 

Having been an engineer and an architect, he used all of his talents for the Lord. 
lie first church he helped design and build was the church at Swan Quarter. Tliis 
mcture replaced the "church moved by the hand of God." 

Back in 1876 a group of Methodists approached one of the Swan Quarter citizens 
1(1 asked to purchase a lot from him. He turned them down saying he had other plans 
r Ills property. So the Methodists bought a less desirable lot and built a modest 
line structure there. 



170 North Carolina Annual Conference 

Three days after the church was completed, dedicatory services were held. On 
that night, right after the services, a severe storm struck the area. Waters of the nearby 
sounds blew into surrounding creeks and rivers and soon the streets of Swan Quarter 
were covered with water five feet deep in places. Citizens were amazed to look out 
their windows and suddenly see the Methodist Church serenely floating down the 
street. When the church reached an intersection, it floated down the main street and 
came to rest on the empty lot that the church members had first wanted. The next 
morning the owner of the property deeded it to the Methodist Church saying he had 
had his warning. 

By 1907 the membership had grown and the congregation decided to build a brick 
church. It was this brick church that was erected during Mr. Phipps ministry. The old 
frame church was moved to one side and is still used as an educational building. 

Mr. Phipps was helpful in the building plans of other churches that he served. 
During his stay at Pittsboro he drew up plans for remodeling and brick-veneering the 
church building, installing central heating, and the addition of Sunday School rooms. 
He also designed a new parsonage for the Pittsboro circuit and was the first minister 
to occupy it. 

Also during his ministry on the circuit, the Browns Chapel Methodist Church was 
enlarged and brick-veneered. 

Funeral services for him were held at the Pittsboro Methodist Church, March 23, 
1968, at 2 p.m. by the pastor of the church, the Rev. Randall Baker; the Pittsboro 
circuit minister, the Rev. J. A. Booth; and the Burlington District Superintendent, Dr. 
E. B. Fisher. Interment was in the churchyard. 

Mr. Phipps married three times. His first marriage was to his childhood sweetheart, 
Miss Juliana Elizabeth Lyon, of Baltimore, who died in 1952. To this union one 
daughter was bom, Mrs. Eleanor Phipps Kerr, who lives at 2702 Stratford, Greensboro, 
N. C. 

He rnarried Mrs. Hattie Murray of Durham in 1953. She died in 1962. In 1963 he 
was married to Mrs. Mary C. Farrell, of Pittsboro, who survives him. After his marriage 
to Mrs. Farrell, he returned to Pittsboro where he lived until his death.

HIRAM KERSHAW KING 

1891 - 1968 

The brave spirit of Hiram K. King triumphed and returned to God on June 1, 1968. 
Thus ended the earthly pilgrimage of a gallant Methodist minister who exemplified John 
W'l -1. \\ -x niipli of a "warm heart and a trained mind." 

His background, training and dynamic faith was the 
launching pad of a ministry that would span five de<:ades 
and touch thousands of lives on three continents. 

After serving as an Infantry officer in the United 
States Army in the States, France, and Germany, he put 
down the armor of the nation and put on the whole 
armor of God. 

He served first as a missionary in Europe and with 
service in Belgium and Poland for four years. While in 
Belgium he met the lovely Blanche Holland and follow- 
ing a romance of several months, they were married in 
our Methodist Chapel in Brussels. Together they went to 
Poland to serve in the ancient cities of Warsaw, Lwow, 
and Lemberg. Mrs. King organized and guided the first! 
Woman's Society of Methodism in Europe. 

Brother Hiram also received a special two-year as- 
signment as Associate Secretary, General Board of Mis- 
sions for Christian Education in the Orient working pri- 
marily in China, Japan, and Korea. 
The Asian assignment followed a fruitful period as pastor and presiding elder in the 
North Arkansas Conference serving Fisher Street, Jonesboro; Methodist Commimity 
Center, Wilson; First Church, Jonesboro, and as superintendent of the Batesville District 




Journal of Proceedings 



171 



In 1935 the Kings came to North CaroHna where he served with distinction at Front 
Street, Burhngton; First Church, Elizabeth City; First Church, Henderson; First Church, 
Laurinburg; Centenary, Smithfield; and Centenary, New Bern. Following a six-year ten- 
ure on the New Bern District, he was aippointed the first full-time Conference executive 
secretary of Evangehsm. He retired from this position and worked part-time witli the 
Department of Gifts and Wills, the Methodist Foundation, Inc. His work with a number 
of chiuch-building and fund-raising programs was outstanding. 

He suffered a stroke during one of these program efforts and following hospitabzation 
at Wake Memorial in Raleigh, entered the Infirmary of the Methodist Retirement Home 
in Durham. There his brave spirit took command and it was amazing how he came to 
move about and seek to be active. A malignancy terminated his early life on Jtme 1. 
Memorial services were conducted on June 3 in the chapel of Edenton Street in Raleigh 
with Dr. T. Marvin Viok, Dr. F. Olen Hunt, and the Rev. George Blount sharing in the 
service of praise and tribute. His mortal remains were laid to rest by his beloved 
Blanche at Raleigh Memorial Park. 

Dr. King is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Robert L. (Carolyn) Standerwick, 1409 
Lawrence Lane, Bellevue, Nebraska 68005; three granddaughters and one grandson; 
two sisters, Mrs. O. P. Makepeace of Sanford and Mrs. Leroy D. Marshbum of Green- 
ville; three brothers, Wilbur King of Atlanta, Ga., Frank King of Jacksonville, Fla., and 
Henri Earle King of Hampton, Va. 

Hiram King was my first district sui)erintendent in North Carolina. He was also a 
devoted friend. The ministry to him was not so much a duty but a spirit of love and 
loyalty to the Master. Among the difiiculties he encountered along the path of life he 
ever called forth his invisible means of support rooted in a deep, personal faith in Christ. 

It has been said that when a man comes to die, he only ix>ssesses that which he gave 
away for the good of others and for the glory of God. Somehow the Father seemed to 
specialize in the life of Hiram King as He made his life a pure channel of blessing for 
those whom he served. 

Your work shall not be lost. Dr. King Your love and example will continue to exert 
their powerful influence upon those whose lives were toudhed by yours! Your going makes 
heaven more attractive to us!

bom April 23, 1886, at Siler City, North Carolina. Here she spent her childhood and 
youth and received her early education. Upon finishing her education in the schools of 
the local community she pursued her later studies at 
what is now the University of North Carolina at Greens- 
boro. She was married to the Reverend George W. 
Perry on May 21, 1913, beloved pastor who served 
several leading pastorates in the North Carolina Confer- 
ence prior to his sudden death from a heart attack, 
November 19, 1943, while serving Jarvis Memorial

North Carolina, where she taught a number of years 
and served as Dean of Women until her retirement. 
During these years at High Point she was a member of 
the Entre Nous Club. She was also a member of the

the Women's Society of Christian Service and the 
Friendship Club. 
Mrs. Perry's death occurred on August 17, 1967, following a brief illness. Funeral 
jservices were conducted at the Sechrest Chapel in High Point by the Reverend Dr.

Journal of Proceedings 173 

MRS. MARY LUCY HARRELL SELF 

To scan, even in a brief way, the history and character of a life so truly great as 
was that of Mrs. Self is both an inspiration and a source of strengtli to anyone. A little 
less than four score years ago Mary Lucy Harrell, daughter of Samuel Issac Harrell and 
Isadora Costen Harrell, was born February 26, 1889, in 
Sunbury, North Carolina. Other children were Costen 
J. Harrell, only surviving member of this family who 
is now a retired Bishop of The Metliodist Church resid- 
ing in Atlanta, Georgia; Issac Samuel Harrell who was 
Professor of History in New York University; Malene 
Harrell Grant, wife of Dr. Thomas McM. Grant who was 
a minister in the North Carolina Conference; and 
Thomas Costen Harrell, business manager of Greensboro 
College. 

She received her education in the Durham Public 
Schools and Durham Music College. On October 26, 
1910, she was married to Marvin Young Self, a young 
minister who had transferred from the Western North 
Carolina Conference to the North Carolina Conference in 
1909. To this union was bom one son, Samuel Harrell 
Self, who with his wife, the former Florence Abernathy, 
live in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Also surviving are three 
grandchildren, Samuel Harrell Self, Jr., Marvin Young 
Self III, Rebecca K. Self, and one great-grandson, Brian Patrick Self. 

Having received a noble heritage from an outstanding eastern Carolina family 
Mrs. Self served well her fellowman and her church throughout her life. She labored 
with distinction by the side of her husband during most of the years of his ministry. 

Her going was quiet and without fanfare as was her life day by day. It was alto- 
gether fitting that when God called Marvin Young Self to his heavenly home on May 13, 
1967, that his devoted companion should be reunited with him only five months later 
on October 13 of the same year. Her funeral service was conducted by her pastor, the 
Reverend O. V. Elkins, and the Reverend H. L. Davis in the Littleton Methodist 
Church on October 15, 1967. She was buried in the Sunset Hill Cemetery of Littleton. 
It would be impossible to make an adequate evaluation of a life which meant 
so much to so many along the pathway over which she travelled. Her co-workers in the 
Woman's Society of Christian Service expressed their thoughts in the following words: 
"Mrs. Self was rather petite of stature; nevertheless, she was a person of boundless 
energy. She had a fine sense of humor and a quick repartee, a kindly, easy-going nature, 
and a warmth of personality that endeared her to all who knew her." Truly can it be 
said of her, to know her was to love her. 

It was easy to understand the source of her strength when one had the privilege 
of knowing her in her home. Her's was a home where God was worshipped, loved, and 
obeyed. The inspiration which came from her daily walk with her heavenly Father 
enabled her to lead with strength as she lived and taught those in her care. Her 
humility and gentleness made her great, for she was pure in thought, gentle and gracious 
in manner, exemplary in conduct. 

We would remind those who are left behind that theirs is a heritage of high ideals, 
noble living, and sacrificial service. No words can better describe the beauty of her 
character than those of the poet, John Greenleaf Whittier, who wrote: 
For all her quiet life flowed on as meadow streamlets flow. 
Where fresher green reveals alone the noiseless ways they go. 
Her path shall brighten more and more unto the perfect day; 
She cannot fail of peace who bore such peace with her away. 
O sweet, calm face that seemed to wear the look of sins forgiven! 
O voice of prayer that seemed to bear our own hands up to heaven! 
How reverent in our midst she stood or knelt in grateful praise! 
What grace of Christian womanhood was in her household ways! 
For still her holy living meant no duty left undone; 
The heavenly and the human blent their kindred loves in one. 
She kept her line of rectitude with love's unconscious ease; 
Her kindly instincts understood all gentle courtesies. 
The dear Lord's best interpreters are humble human souls; 
The Gospel of a life like hers is more than books or scrolls. 

— Nicholas W. Grant

MRS. MARY EDWARDS PARKER BEAMAN 

1875-1967 

Mary Edwards Beaman was born in Charlotte, North CaroHna, July 9, 1875. She 
was one of eight children, all of whom became active in the Methodist Church. In 1891 
she married Rev. Thomas William Sherman Parker, who became a member of the 

North Carolina Conference of the Methodist Episcopal 

Church, South, at its Annual Session, Fayetteville, North 
Carolina, 1887. Mr. Parker died unexpectedly in 1893. 
To this marriage one child was born, Lavinia, who is 
now deceased. 

In 1898 Mrs. Parker married George William Bea- 
man, also of Charlotte, and to this marriage a daughter, 
Frances Blount, was bom who became the wife of 
Bishop Fred Corson. Mr. Beaman died in 1963, after 
which Mrs. Beaman became a resident in the Methodist 
Church Home at Comwallis, Pennsylvania. She died on 
November 18, 1967, at the age of 92 and was buried 
in the Edgewater Cemetery, New Smyrna Beach, Flor- 
ida, where Mr. and Mrs. Beaman made their home for 
many years. 

Mrs. Mary Parker Beaman lived a life characterized 
by unselfish service. All who knew her felt the influence 
of her Christian character. 

"Servant of God, well done! 

Thy glorious warfare's past; 
The battle's fought, the race is won, 

And thou are crowmed at last." 
"Redeemed from earth and pain. 

Ah! when shall we ascend, 
And all in Jesus' presence reign 

Through ages without end?" 

— Bishop Fred P. Corson 




NORA FINCH DODD 



1886-1967 



Mrs. Nora Finch Dodd joined her husband, the Reverend E. D. Dodd, in "The 
Father's House of Many Mansions" on the 9th day of December, 1967. Mr. Dodd pre- 
ceded lur in death ])y thirteen months and twenty-three days. She passed away in Union 
Memorial Hospital, Monroe, N. C. Services were con- 
ducted for her in the Fuquay Springs Methodist Church 
by the pastor, Reverend C. W. Crutchfield, and the 
writer. 

Mrs. Dodd was born May the 5th, 1886, in Bailey, 
N. C, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Ray Finch. 
She was married to Reverend E. D. Dodd September 
11, 1904, and to this union two children were bom, 
David of Monroe, N. C, and Christine Johnson of 
Raleigh. 

For more than thirty-six years Mrs. Dodd graced a 
Methodist parsonage. She was a devoted mother; and 
she was a faithful wife to an itinerant Methodist preach- 
er, never trying to interfere with his ministry, but, rather, 
giving him the support and prayers of a Christian wife. 
Mrs. Dodd was quiet and unassuming, but deep was her 
faith in the saving and sustaining grace of the Lord 
Jesus. She was kind and considerate and ready to serve 
anywhere, or anyone. In all the places they served she 




I 



Journal of Proceedings 175 



made many friends. In 1948, Mr. and Mrs. Dodd retired and moved to Fuquay Springs, 
where she continued to minister in the name of her Lord until she moved to "The 
House Not Made With Hands, Eternal in the Heavens." 

The writer of Proverbs perfectly describes her character in the 31st chapter when 
he said: "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart 
of her husband doth safely trust in her. . . . She stretcheth out her hands to the poor; 
yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. . . . She openeth her mouth with 
vdsdom: and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her 
household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her 
blessed. . . . Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour 
is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be 
praised." 

She always leaned to watch for us. Anxious if we were late. 

In winter by the window, In summer by the gate; 

And though we mocked her tenderly. Who had such foolish care, 

The long way home would seem more safe. Because she waited there. 

Her thoughts were all so full of us — She never could forget! 

And so I think that where she is She must be watching yet, 

Waiting till we come home to her. Anxious if we are late — 

Watching from heaven's window, Leaning from heaven's gate. 

— B. D. Critcher 



MRS. DAISY RANDLE SNIPES 

1879-1968 

The writing of this memoir is an act of appreciation. As a small boy I was received 
into the church by the venerable Doctor Jonathan Sanford, who was at that time the 
pastor of my parents. Seventy-five years later it is my privilege to write the memoir of 

khis granddaughter, Mrs. Daisy Handle Snipes. 
^ The task is both easy and difficult. Her life was a 

* ^t^ long and inspiring symphony which literally sang itself. 

/ ^^W With relation to the church she was "to the manner 

I .^ate. ,m. ^^b bom." She is the only woman I have ever knowm who 
I 'Ji^ W^ ' ^ll llll was granddaughter, daughter and wife of a Methodist 
^MH minister. In each of these relationships she closely ap- 
^^H proached the ideal. 
I ^m, Mrs. Snipes was born March 21, 1879, the daughter 

%, of James W. and Lillie Sanford Handle. She died Febru- 

?^\ ary 1, 1968, at the Memorial Hospital in Chapel Hill. 

' "^^ r '^^^w^^ She was buried in Maplewood Cemetery in Durham. 
" "*'.' I? ^■Ma jjjg funeral services were conducted by the Reverend 
* '^'^^^ ^^B ^* ^" P^tteway, pastor of Duke Memorial Church, to 

< y. *W . i^ JH which she belonged. She received her education at 
1^ "%-)^ V- ^M Littleton College and State Normal College, now the 

jj^_ "^ *' *^ *^ ^B University of North Carolina at Greensboro. 

BM**"^ '« ^ '''<^'*'4^ , ^ She was married to the Reverend Eugene Malcolm 

Snipes February 15, 1906. There were no children, hence 
ley became parents and helpers of thousands of young persons throughout the Confer- 
tice. No more popular or effective workers with the young could be found. 

Mrs. Snipes was all that could be desired in a minister's wife. I have recently read 
splendid book entitled "The Pastor's Wife." Naturally, my mind turned to a compar- 
ou of her with the ideals set forth in that book. She measured up in the highest degree. 
\\v was a husband's helper, a gracious hostess, an eager and earnest assistant in all of 
le work of the church. She was not only effective in the woman's work of the local 
larges, but her influence extended widely throughout the entire conference. She was 
onference Secretary of the Woman's Missionary Society for many years. As an in- 
vidual she was friendly, inspiring, helpful. 

The extent of her service is indicated by the charges which they served. These 
eluded Burlington, Washington, Mt. Olive, Oxford and others. Mr. Snipes was Pre- 



176 North Carolina Annual Conference 

siding Elder of the Weldon District also. In all of their charges the work made definite 
progress. 

However, when these facts have been stated, the story is not yet told. It is easy tt 
state how long she lived but difficult to say how much. For life is not measured b> 
calendar years but by work done, influence exerted, service rendered. When we measun 
her life by the contribution she made to the welfare of her fellow human beings, hej 
care for the happiness of others, the assistance given those in sorrow and distress, she 
lived a marvelous life. 

For more than thirty years after her husband's death she spent her summers at Laki 
Junaluska where she was well known and greatly beloved. She was known by some a 
"The Lady of the Lake." 

Even so tliis memoir is inadequate in that there is no way to express fully the inne 
quality of her life, her influence for good, the splendor of her noble living. 

Long years ago the poet Wordsworth wrote: "trailing clouds of glory do we com 
from God who is our home." These words referred to babies. It is easy to imagine tha 
when people leave us in their old age they leave behind them another cloud of glory 
Often we watch the matchless splendor of the sunsets which illuminate the westen 
skies. After the sun has disappeared below the horizon there is frequently a brillian 
afterglow. The lives of persons like Daisy Randle Snipes will doubtless leave an after 
glow which will be long and lasting. 

— H. E. Spence 



MRS. SUSAN IRENE SAWTELLE GARLAND 

1906-1968 ; 

Mrs. Susan Irene Sawtelle Garland was born February 20, 1906, in Clintoi]! 

Massachusetts, the daughter of J. Walter Sawtelle, and his wife, Emma Fisher Sawtellf 

She grew up in the city of her birth, attending and graduating from its public schoc 

system. She continued her education at Boston Univei 

sity, where she graduated in 1927, majoring in bot 

Christian Education and Elementary Education. 

Even though she was trained, and certified, to teac 
in the public schools of Massachusetts, she decided t 
make her life's work in the field of her Christian Educa 
tion Major. Yet, her decision was not to become 
Director of Christian Education in one of the large j 
churches of her conference. On the contrary, she wouLl 
fulfill her calling as the lifelong helpmate and companio 
of a young "On Trial" member of the New Englan 
Conference, the Reverend Roger Emerson Garland. O 
June 19, 1927, Roger Emerson Garland and Susan Iren 
Sawtelle were married; and, from this point until Roger 
deatli, these two great souls worked together, tirelessly 
for the advancement of God's Kingdom among men. 

Mrs. Garland's qualifications, as a Christian witnes 
goes beyond her training at Boston University and th; 
fact that she married a minister. Her Grandfather Fish( 
was one of a long line of Methodist Ministers (by that name) in Tennessee. B 
her own Ufe of service in the Church, and having met all qualifications, she was dul 
recommended by the Clinton (Massachusetts) Quarterly Conference, of the Ne' 
England Annual Conference, for Local Preacher's License. She was granted tli 
License on June 24, 1925, while still a college student. Following her graduation froi 
Boston University, and marriage, she continued her ministerial studies; and, she wt 
ordained Deacon, in the New England Annual Conference, on April 14, 1929. B; 
1933, Mrs. Garland had met all requirements for our highest ordination: an Elder i! 
the Church. 

In Massachusetts, Roger and Irene served, hand in hand — with Roger as pastol 
churches in the following cities: Graniteville, Lowell, Lynn, Worcester, Milford, Chic(; 
pee Falls, and Boston. 

During the early part of 1954, the Rev. and Mrs. Garland came to the realizatio' 





Journal of Proceedings 177 

that the Lord was calling them into a different area for pastoral service. Beacuse of the 
great things which were taking place in the North Carolina Conference, Brother Garland 
felt led to contact Bishop Paul N. Garber. This contact led to the transfer of his 
Conference Membership to the North Carolina Conference, and the transfer was 
finalized on October 27, 1954. Since coming our way, the Garlands served the following 
appointments: Pembroke: First Church, Saxapahaw, and Ellerbe. During the latter part 
of their year at Ellerbe, after only a few days of illness, on April 21, 1963, the great 
heart of Roger Emerson Garland failed, and he was "released to go home." 

After her husband's death, Mrs. Garland continued living in the parsonage, at 
EUerbe, and working in the church until the Annual Conference Session of that year. 
By this time, with the help of friends, she had managed to get enough furnishings 
together to equip a comfortable apartment for her widowed mother and herself. Mrs. 
Garland made her home, then, in Marshville, North Carolina, in order to be near her 
son. Dr. Wesley Scott Garland, who was a practicing physician there at the time. 

It would seem that with such a full life behind her, this great lady would have 
settled down to a simple and quiet retirement, but such was not die case. Very soon 
after her arrival in Marshville, she was asked to become the teacher of the Ladies Bible 
Class in the Methodist Church, of Marshville, where her son was an officer. Nothing 
could have given her greater joy at the time, and nobody could have performed the task 
better. Within a few months, Mrs. Garland was asked to make use of her training as a 
public school teacher. She not only accepted the challenge of becoming a "Special 
Education" instructor; but, she also went back to school in order to get furtlier training 
and to bring her certificate up to date. This specialized training, she took at the 
University of North Carolina, at Charlotte. 

Mrs. Garland worked faithfully in her school and church imtU sudden illness struck, 
in the form of a "stroke" on January 19, 1968. She was taken from her home in Marsh- 
ville, to Presbyterian Hospital, at Charlotte, North Carolina. All seemed to be going well 
until another "stroke" came; and, she passed on into the Life Immortal on February 
2, 1968, while still a patient in the hospital at Charlotte. Funeral services were con- 
ducted two days later at the Ellerbe Methodist Church, where her husband had served 
his last pastorate, by the present pastor, the Reverend W. F. Meacham. Her body was 
ilaid to rest beside that of her husband, at the Ellerbe Cemetery, in Ellerbe, North 
Carolina. 

Mrs. Garland is survived by her son. Dr. Wesley Scott Garland (a member of the 
Medical Staff at the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, of Winston-Salem, North 
Carolina); her mother, Mrs. Emma Fisher Sawtelle (who lived with her at Marshville, 
but who now makes her home with Dr. Garland); and, there are four grandchildren 
(son and daughters of Dr. Garland) who will forever hold dear the memory of their 
vvonderful grandmother. 

Throughout their earthly pilgrimage, Roger and Irene Garland possessed minds 
md spirits which led them, and all others whom they touched (in New England and 
n North Carolina) to the spiritual heights. Now, they have been promoted to that 
quality and state of life which Jesus promises to all whose lives are dedicated to him. 
Roger's homegoing preceded Irene's by almost five years; and, she remained to help 
ill who knew her to see the power of Christian Faith, Hope, and Love perfectly demon- 
itrated in spite of loss and sorrow.

Section V 

REPORT OF DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS 

BURLINGTON DISTRICT 
Edgar B. Fisher, Superintendera 

It has been both a joy and a privilege to serve this year as superintendent of the 
Burhngton District. Truly some of the finest ministers and lay people to be f oimd any- 
where reside in this district. 

Throughout the year the people of the district have manifested warm and sincere 
friendship. Much of any success achieved has come as the result of hard-working, dedi- 
cated individuals. 

Membership and Evangelism: A spirit of genuine evangelism has been observed 
throughout the year. An outstanding spiritual Ufe retreat was conducted for the minis- 
ters. At the time of the waiting of this report, the record reveals that more than 400 
lew members have been received, 143 having come on profession of faith, 204 by cer- 
ificate of church membership, and 76 from other denominations. Special evangelistic 
iervices have been held in many of the churches. Lay witness mission services have been 
leld in the First Methodist Church of Mebane and the First Methodist Chiu-ch of Gra- 
lam. 

Christian Higher Education: The Burlington District has beeo outstanding in its 
upix)rt of oiu- higher education program. Many churches have paid their college cru- 
ade pledge in full. 

Christian Education: The district has a nmnber of training schools each year. Many 
ledicated workers take advantage of this opportunity for training. 

Camp Crusade: The district has accomphshed much in this program. Our church in 
Mebane pledged enough to take care of the erection of one new cabin at Camp Chestnut 
lidge. Many other churches are cooperating in the effort to raise as much as $50,000 
1 the Burhngton District over a three-year period for the support of this camp. 

Women's Work: There are 73 organizations of the Woman's Society of Christian 
ervice and five Wesleyan Service Guild organizations, with close to three thousand 
lembers. These ladies inspire all of us with their sense of dedication to the cause of 
■hrist, both at home and abroad. 

Lay Activities: The laymen are doing outstanding work. The district had more men 
resent at the Laymen's Meeting at Melodist College last summer than any other dis- 
ict. The No-Silent Pulpit program was highly successful. More than six hundred at- 
;nded the lay rally this year. 

Building and Improvements: This year three new parsonages have been dedicated as 
illows: the one at Piney Grove-Hickory Grove Charge, the one at Cedar Grove, and 
le parsonage of First Methodist Church in Graham. Fairview Church has erected a 
jautiful new parsonage. First Methodist Church in Graham has had the service of 
>nsecration for its beautiful new sanctuary, church parlor, chapel, and additional edu- 
itional facihties. The Educational Building at the Leasburg Chvuch was dedicated. A 
;w parsonage is planned for the Moncure Charge. The Yanceyville Methodist Church 
IS greatly unproved its educational facihties and has air-conditioned the sanctuary. "Hie 
lurch at Hebron had a service of consecration for its new building. 

finances: The district has made a splendid financial record. Prospects seem to be 
ight for paying everything out in full. A wonderful response has been given to the 
ngle Figure Apportionment plan for the new conference year. It looks as if almost 
le hundred per cent will be pledged. Many pastors' salaries have been increased for the 
w conference year. It is believed that the total amount of increase vvdU be more than 
2,f 00 for the district as a whole. 

The district superintendent is most gratefid for the admirable spirit that has been 
imifested by the ministers and lay people of the entire district.

192 North Carolina Annual Conference 

DURHAM DISTRICT 
O. L. Hathaway, Superintendent 

This has been another good year for the pastors and lay people working together in 
the churches of the Durham District. I count it both a privilege and a pleasure to make 
the report for them at this time. 

Membership and Evangelism: This report of April 15, 1968, reveals the following 
facts: We have received 970 persons into the membership of the churches and during 
the same period, we have lost 571, giving to us a net gain in membership of 399. We 
have baptized 123 infants. 

Christian Education: The district staff has been carrying on the program of teacher 
training in the district with good success. The pastors attended one meeting for the con- 
sideration of the new materials for the youth of the church. 

Christian Higher Education: Our people have been trying to pay out their college 
pledges this year. Some churches have been paying toward that goal. Three more of our 
churches have been added to the honor roll, namely: St. John, Lea's Chapel, and Rouge- 
mont. Others are planning to be out by conference. We are grateful for the help that our 
colleges are giving to our youth. 

Lay Activities: Lay activities continue to grow under the leadership of James T. 
Patrick and his associates in the Durham District. The lay rally at the Civic Center was 
filled again this year as we honored our own Bishop Paul N. Garber. Dr. Carl J. Sanders 
of the Virginia Conference was our guest speaker this year. In behalf of all of our people, 
I wish to thank James T. Patrick for the leadership he has given to the Durham District 
for the past eight years. He has been one of the most consecrated, devout, and willing 
workers that it has been my privilege to work with in the ministry of the church. We 
pray our Father's blessings uix)n him. 

Woman's Society of Christian Service: We have a new president in Mrs. C. D. Scott 
this year. She has given good leadership to our officers and the societies in our churches. 
The growth and interest in this great work continues and we see an increase in the love 
and service rendered to the work in the people of our churches. These good women 
have given to me as their district superintendent, cooi)eration, understanding, and sup- 
port for the program of the district. 

Buildings and Improvement : Bishop Paul N. Garber held ground-breaking service 
for new educational buildings at Community Methodist Church at Butner and Duke 
Chapel Methodist Church. Another service will be conducted at Chapel Hill, Amity 
Methodist Church, on May 12, 1968. Educational buildings have been or are nearing 
completion at Mt. Sylvan and Mt. Tabor. Consecration service was held for the Carrboro 
new educational building and a renovation program of the sanctuary. Planning for new 
buildings continues at Mt. Bethel in Bahama, Warren's Grove, Massey's Chapel, Oxford, 
Andrew's Chapel, and Trinity. New parsonages have been constructed at Mt. Zion and 
Brooksdale. A new parsonage for Lakewood Methodist Church is under construction 
and will soon be completed for the parsonage family. Parsonages have been purchased 
for Trinity, Bethany, and Bethesda in the city of Durham. Renovation programs have 
been going on in a number of our churches. St. Paul and Grove Hill have placed stained 
glass windows in their sanctuaries. 

We have spent on buildings and indebtedness for churches and parsonages this year, 
a total of $282,739.00. 

We give thanks for the measure of growth and for the kind spirit of our people in 
the work that they have accomplished this year. May the future be bright and the prom- 
ises eternal and everlasting. 

EASTERN DISTRICT 
James McCallum, Superintendent 

This has been a short conference year to us, but a very inspiring one. On March 28th. 
the North Carolina- Virginia Conference adjourned, finis, and at that time we were 
greeted by Bishop Garber along with several members of this great Conference. The 
following week we were again greeted by Bishop Garber and many Conference mem- 1 
bers. For the past years we have worked together, especially since 1964; therefore, wc 
feel at home today, and to you we are grateful. 

The Eastern District has 18 charges, 34 local churches, with a membership of 3,500,j 



JOURNAL OF Proceedings 193 

served by 18 pastors. This territory, starting at its southeast point — Wihnington — goes 
lortheast to Goldsboro, northwest to Oxford, and southwest to Rockingham. 

I wish to express my thanks to the ministers and laymen of this district who are 
^vorking very hard to make the necessary adjustments and I am sure that a much fuller 
■eport at the next conference session will reveal the results of such labors. Many of our 
;hurch buildings have been recently, or are in the process of being built or remodeled. 
We do have some places where such a program has been or needs to be started. 

We are very sorry to leam that our leader. Bishop Garber, will soon be leaving us. 
knowing of the splendid leadership he has given during his ministry, and most recently 
o this Conference, we pray that such leadership shall continue to be a part of him and 
o our church amid these days of change. 

As we enter the new church — The United Methodist — ^we, the members of the East- 
;rn District, pledge our utmost support to this, our Conference, that His kingdom shall 
■ontinue, under the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. 

ELIZABETH CITY DISTRICT 
Henry G. Ruark, Superintendent 

This report represents the work of the pastors and lay people of the 73 churches in 
lie Elizabeth City District. The net gain in membership has amounted to only six, and 
bis may seem too small to mention, but in most of the area included in the district 
here is a large and steady decrease in population, so that this increase is a result of the 
ihgence and refusal to surrender to circumstances on the part of the pastors and people. 
Ve are confident that our faithful churchmen will continue to labor in the Lord's vine- 
ard. But the fruit of their labors waits on a changing population trend that may be 
;rought about by the industrialization and improved transportation in the area. 
! Nineteen of our 37 charges have accepted in full the single figure asking, and the 
jbher 18 have accepted enough to make the district record above 95% of the fuU asking, 
■here have been a number of small but heartening increases in ministerial support. Stew- 
■■dship is also evident in the care of church property. Estimated value of church bmld- 
igs is $3,612,254, and of parsonages $578,600. Other assets are listed at $36,000. Im- 
.rovements on buildings amounting to $38,736 have been made during this conference 
.?ar. Total indebtedness of property is $124,614, but $83,246 has been paid on debts 
is year. In addition, our churches have given Advance Specials amounting to $5,448 
iring this year. City Road Church, Ehzabeth City, has completed an educational build- 
g costing $70,000 with indebtedness of only $10,000 left at this time. 
\ ^ Lay speakers have been furnished for all services requested in the "No-Silent Pul- 
:t' program. The district lay rally in February attracted 600 laymen who heard a 
rring message by Dr. A. G. Jefferson of Lynchburg, Va. 

Meanwhile the evangehstic ministry on the Outer Banks continues to expand. At Cur- 
uck Courthouse it is expected that a student from Duke will assist the pastor in serv- 
es to private camps in that area. The movies on the beaches, which in previous years 
ve attracted hundreds of tourists at Kill Devil Hills, will be continued this summer. In 
dition plans are hopefully being made for an ice cream parlor tent to reach young 
ople to whom carefully-selected students will make their Christian witness nightly, 
jke Divinity students have been requested to witness in the camps from Nags Head 
Hatteras and also on Ocracoke Island. These efforts will be undergirded financially 
im conference and district funds. 

FAYETTEVILLE DISTRICT 

Graham S. Eubank, Superintendent 

This has been an unusual year in the Fayetteville District. The response of the pas- 
1.S and laymen has gone beyond any expectations of the superintendent. No one has 
li finer cooperation and there has been no finer Christian spirit than that found in the 
t,irches of this district. There has been very little quibbling and no negativism. The 
liters and people have been interested in the program of the church to where the 
s 5erintendent could expect a favorable response to the whole program. We believe 
t re is a deep spiritual renewal taking place in our churches, sometimes surprising the 
I tors and superintendent. The early preparation of this report will leave many areas 
i omplete. We expect to have a more complete report for the 1968 Journal. 



194 North Carolina Annual Conference 

Membership and Evangelism: Thus far the churches report a total number of bap- 
tisms as 376; new members added by confirmation and transfer, 1,051, giving us a total 
membership of 19,756 for a net gain of 448. Emphasis on evangeHsm has also included 
revivals, spiritual retreats, and emphasis on prayer life and personal devotions, and visi- 
tation and educatienal evangehsm. These concerns have been encouraged in all oppor- 
timities provided the superintendent and other members of the district staff. 

Missions and Church Extension: There has been a full program of mission education 
in the local churches of this district. Almost all churches have had mission studies. Our 
Christmas offering was over $2,000. Amounts received in Robeson and Hoke Counties 
were directed to the Pembroke area work. The remainder of the district was directed 
toward helping the churches to minister to mihtary personnel in the Fort Bragg and Pope 
Air Base areas. Our two new churches, Arran Lake and Trinity, organized about a year 
ago in these areas, are doing well. The Branch Street Church in Lvimberton has been an 
inspiration to all related to it. A feature story appeared in the February issue of The 
Methodist Story, highhghting some of the featirres of the new church. The title of the 
article was "The Miracle on Branch Street." The district superintendent has been very 
much encouraged by the interest shown by the ministers and others in the Pembroke 
area. 

We have a tremendous opportunity and responsibihty to minister to the dependents 
of the military personnel now living in the Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base areas. 
We need greater financial support in this area. We urge the Conference Board of Mis- 
sions and the Woman's Society of Christian Service to help provide a greater ministry 
to the churches located to serve these people. 

We wish to express our appreciation to Dr. Wilson Nesbitt of the Duke Endowment 
and the Rev. L. C. Vereen, executive secretary of the Conference Board of Mission, foi 
assistance given in these areas. 

Woman's Society of Christian Service: The women of our district continue to sup- 
port the program of the Women's Division of the Board of Mission and are very much 
concerned with the needs of our area. Mrs. Ivan Welbum, district president, has re- 
ported the organization of two or three new societies this year. 

Christian Education: Most of the churches of the district are now using the new 
Adult Church School curriculimi and are preparing for the new youth curriculimi tha^ 
they will begin using in September. Vacation Church Schools have been held in most 
of our churches in the summer of 1967. Total church school enrollment to date is 13,0O5J 

Christian Higher Education: Our churches cooperated with the plan to increase 
the giving to the College Capital Funds Crusade through the Conference program and 
the Fayetteville Foundation. Some of these churches have overpaid and some have paid 
in full this year. The churches which have not paid their goals at this time expect to pay 
until all goals are paid in full. 

Lay Activities: The men of our district have been really challenged by our lay leadei! 
and his associates. Approximately 1,100 people attended the lay rally at Hay Streel' 
Church where Bishop Earl G. Hunt, Jr. was the speaker. This was the largest nvmibe?! 
of Methodists to ever attend a district meeting. \ 

Stewardship and Finance: The stewardship of the churches of the district has exi 
ceeded our best hopes. The district has led throughout the year in percentage paid tc| 
the conference treasurer. As of April 22, 50 of 56 charges have accepted the single figurt 
asking in full. The average asking is more than a 12% increase. We expect the district t(' 
be 100% in acceptance and also our goal is 100% payment in full of all items accepte< 
for the year. 

Buildings and Improvements: Several of the churches have been involved in build 
ing and raising funds for new buildings. Union Church on the Mamers Charge has bull 
a new educational wing this year. Christ Church, Fayetteville, will complete its nev 
sanctuary by early summer. Hoke Charge has built a new parsonage which will be oc 
cupied by a new pastor assigned at Conference. The Raeford Church contributed $10, 
000 to this project. St. Paul's sanctuary has been renovated. Lillington Church wa 
dedicated May 12 by Bishop Garber and ground was broken on May 26 for a nev 
church in Coats. Ground was also broken for a $100,000 educational building at St 
Matthews on June 2. Working plans are being prepared for a complete new church a 
Pleasant Gove and a new educational building at Collins Chapel. Plans are also bein] ? 
made for an educational building at Camp Ground. Wesley Heights expects to begiar?! 
construction on its new sanctuary this year. Cumberland's' new' sanctuary should , 
completed by Conference and the total evaluation of the church property will be inj 
creased to $180,000. The Maxton Church is now involved in securing a new site wher^

; complete new chvirch plant will be erected. Many of the churches have repaired and 
)ainted their church buildings and parsonages during the year. 

I wish to express again my gratitude to the pastors and laymen who have supported 
he program of our churches throughout the year And my thanks to my predecessors 
vhose labors have helped to make possible the achievements of this year. 

GOLDSBORO DISTRICT 
Leon Russell, Superintendent 

The enthusiastic and loyal support of the pastors and lay officials of the Goldsboro 
)istrict has made possible any achievements which we are able to record in this report, 
am deeply grateful to all of them. They have cooperated with us in every program of 
ur church, and there have been significant gains in many areas of our responsibihty. I 
m hsting below, in siunmary form, some comment concerning the work of our district. 

Evangelism: At the beginning of this conference year, we set as our goal a net mem- 
ership gain of at least 3%. We believe that before the year is over that goal will be 
cached. Almost every charge has reported a net gain for the year. Those charges with 
le best records at this time are St. Luke, Goldsboro, 42; St. Paul, Goldsboro, 32; New 
tope, Goldsboro, 28; Grace, Clinton, 27; Providence, Goldsboro, 21; Clayton, 19; and 
Vhitley Memorial, Smithfield, 15. 

! Christian Education: Our district staff in Christian education has been unusually 
'lithful in the discharge of its responsibility in this important area of our program, 
through its leadership the majority of our churches are using the new teaching methods 
,id materials in the adult divisions of out churches. A series of workshops has been 
;ld in an effort to prepare our workers for the new youth curriculum. The churches 
ive made fine preparation for this summer's Vacation Church Schools through a meet- 
:g with the directors of the schools and with a most effective Vacation Church School 
'istitute. Last srunmer there were 58 Vacation Church Schools held in the district. 

Tlie College Crusade has been kept before our people and Providence Church, in 
pldsboro, has been added to the Ust of churches which have met their quota in full. 
jther churches are continuing to give. The Camp Crusade has been presented and sub- 
.mtial payments and pledges have been made toward meeting the urgent needs at 
iimp Don Lee. 

Missions: Under the leadership of the district missionary secretary, and with the 
operation of the district Women's Society of Christian Service, five subdistrict training 
jsions were held. As a result the mission study program in all of our churches was 
rried out more effectively. Mrs. E. C. Thompson, the new district president of the 
omen's Society of Christian Service, is leading the women of the district in a splendid 
iv. and is encouraging them to have a renewed interest in the missionary work of our 
I urch. 

, Lay Work: Our laymen have been well represented at all of the conference and dis- 
lot meetings where the causes of our conference have been presented. In February 
17 men met in Goldsboro for the lay rally. During the recent season of Lent lay speak- 
< were provided for all of our charges. There are 20 organized Methodist Men's Clubs 
i the district. 

Buildings and Improvements: Our churches are continuing to build and to improve 
t dr properties, which is one of the evidences of interest and enthusiasnf' among our 
pple. During the year the following dedications took place: Fellowship Church,' the 
Leville Educational Building, the Princeton parsonage, and the new $150,000 sane- 
try at First Church, Clinton. All of the indebtedness has been removed from the 
Irinth Church, on the Four Oaks Charge, and from the Sanders Chai>el Church and 
E'sonage, on the Pine Level Charge. 

The new buildings which have been completed and occupied diu-ing the year are 
\-stwood Church, Goldsboro ($60,000); Pine Forest Church, Goldsboro ($65,000); 
B worth Church, on hte Clinton Circuit ($45,000); Mt. Carmel Educational Building 
(ll,0C0); Clayton, a new addition to house the study and church office ($5,000); and 
a ew parsonage for the Bethel-Rones Charge ($18,000). 

Buildings which are not yet under construction, but are contemplated in the imme- 
d te future include an educational building for Smith Chapel; and educational building 
f< Centenary, Smithfield; an additional educational building and chapel for St. Luke, 
G dsboro; a new sanctuary and parsonage for Grace Church, Clinton; a new church 
f( the congregation of Bethabara Chirrch, on the South River Charge; and an addi- 
ti'al educational building for New Hope, Goldsboro. 



196 North Carolina Annual Conference 

Firumces: Our people have been faithful in their stewardship and it is exjjected that 
all of the charges will pay their budgets in full by conference time. They have faced 
their responsibility for next year by increasing ministerial support: more than $12,000 
and by accepting an increase of more than $15,000 for conference work and benev- 
olences. 

We feel that this has been a good year in the Goldsboro District and all of us are 
grateful to God for His many blessings to us. 

GREENVILLE DISTRICT 
W. R. Stevens, Superintendent 

This report involves the period from July 1, 1967 to April 22, 1968. It includes thfi 
major activities and devoted service of 16,073 members and 42 pastors. An expressi(Mi 
of appreciation goes to those who have made this report possible. The district is com 
posed of 38 pastoral appointments in six coimties and includes 71 churches. 

Evangelism: There has been added to the church rolls a total of 656 members 
Thirty-six confirmation classes have been conducted. Ninety-two infants have receivec 
the sacrament of baptism. Seventeen of the charges are reporting an increase in churol 
attendance. All other charges, except five, have reported about the same attendance. 

Christian Education: There are 70 organized chirrch schools in the district with ar 
enrollment of 10,236 members and an average attendance of 5,515. One hvmdred thir 
teen attended Christian Workers' Schools and 91 were present for the District Vacatioi 
Church School Institute. A District Music Question and Answer session was conducts 
at First Church, Washington, which was well attended and proved to be very effective 
The four subdistrict Consultation on Leadership Training sessions were very helpful u 
stimulating training for leadership in the program of Christian education. An alarmin; 
featm-e of the reports on Christian education is the fact that there sc-ems to be a de 
crease in church school enrollment and attendance. We are hoping this trend to b 
turned upward through leadership training and a more thorough use of our new cui 
riculum materials. Plans are now in the making for Area Workshops on the new youti 
curriculimi. 

Missions: Three very fine and weU-attended mission study institutes were conductc' 
in preparation for our church-wide Schools of Missions in the local churches. As a resul 
there has been a report of 46 very successful schools of missions. Twenty new member 
have been added to the Ten Dollar Club which represents only about half of oiur goa 
The churches have reported that there are 46 advance special projects and that $10,24;. 
has been raised for mission specials. ' 

Stewardship and Lay Activities: The District Board of Lay Activities and the la 
leadership of the 71 churches have been very faithftd in the promotion of stewardshi 
this year. The laymen have also given leadership to both the college and the camp en 
sades by way of promotion, stimulation, and contributions. The support of World Sei 
and Conference Benevolence program has increased over last year, at this date, by 
amount equal to $5,000. At this date there is a considerable increase in the accepi 
of World Service and Conference Benevolence and pastors' salaries for next conferen( 
year. 

Buildings and Improvements: The reports on buildings and improvements indica 
that 30 new projects have been started, 24 completed, and nine dedicated. Total moiu 
raised for buildings and improvements is $185,385. The total value of church proper 
in the Greenville District is $5,695,380; parsonage property, $822,900, and other prope 
ty $390,935, making a total of $1,809,215. Most every charge has reported some in 
provement of their property. Over the entire district, the church and parsonage propet 
is in very good condition. Some of the projects in process and being planned are 1 ) Ja 
vis Memorial is planning a complete renovation and air-conditioning of the education 
building at an estimated cost of $290,000. 2) Grifton is planning a new sanctuary ar , 
educational building at the cost of $165.00. 3) St. Marks in Kinston has air-conditiont j 
the church this year. 4) Westminster in Kinston has completed a new educational buili | 
ing and adjoining very lovel garden at a cost of $130,000. 5) Farmville is in the pr i 
cess of completing plans for the relocation and building of an entire new sanctuary ar I 
church school plant. 6) Stantonsburg has plans underway for a new fellowship hall ar I 
Svmday school rooms plus renovation of die present facfiities. 7) Lebanon Church ( 
the same charge has completed a new kitchen and bathrooms, the cost of which has bet 
paid in full. 8) First Church, Washington, is in the process of completing plans for 



JOITBNAL OF PbOCEEDINGS 197 

new church school building. Other extensive improvements have abeady been made. 
9) St. James Church, Greenville, has completed its new chapel, installed beautifxJ 
stained glas windows, renovated the first unit built in 1955, and completed the purchase 
of a new Ehatch Colonial parsonage, valued at $42,000. 

NEW BERN DISTRICT 

R. Grady Dawson, Superintendent 

To the faithful pastors and loyal Methodists of the New Bern District I want to ex- 
press my sincere appreciation for their good work, splendid cooi>eration and helpful 
support, not only for the past conference year, but also diu-ing the six years I have served 
as superintendent of the district. Through their faithfulness and hard work many won- 
derful things have been accomphshed, and the district has made much progress. As we 
Review the past year's work there are many things worth noting and for which I am 
truly grateful to God and His faithful laborers in the district. 

' Membership and Evangelism: In this area the pastors and their church members 
aave wrought well, and their labors have borne fruit, as the following figures will indi- 
cate. As of April 20, 962 new members have been received into the chvu-ches — 385 on 
profession of faith, with a net increase of 393. The special evangehstic projects of the 
liurches have included 54 revivals, 44 periods of visitation evangelism, 47 church mem- 
bership classes, 165 infant baptisms, seven lay witness missions, and himdreds of cot- 
lage prayer meetings. In addition to those who have been led to Christ and brought into 
ihe fellowship of die church, the spiritual life of the chmrch members has been lifted 
ind renewed. 

Christian Education: This important area of our work continues to be a matter of 
?reat interest and deep concern to our pastors and many of their faithful members. Al- 
(hough the chiurch schools continue to be active and are doing a good work, we have 
<ot made progress in church school enrollment and attendance. Several churches in the 
listrict have shown a fine growth in both enrollment and attendance, but a majority of 
he churches show a decrease. A good program of leadership training has been carried 
ut in the district this year through Christian Workers' Schools, workshops on the com- 
jaissions and on the new youth hterature, a Vacation Church School Institute, and youth 
iiUies. Over 1200 youth and adults have attended one or more of these training opportu- 
jties. The members of the district education staff have been very faithful and worked 
,ard, and to them I want to express my deep appreciation. 

1 There is also a continued interest in Cluistian higher education and our Methodist 
jlleges, as is evidenced by the fact that 22 of the churches have paid their college 
uota in fuU, or will by the end of this year, and 22 others have indicated that they ex- 
lect to pay their quota in fuU in the near future. The chiu-ches of the district will raise 
i excess of $10,000 this year for our Methodist colleges. 

'. Oiu: people have responded in a very fine way to the Camp Crusade. The New Bern 
.'istrict has accepted as a quota $33,333. Most of that amount has already been accept- 
;1 by the local churches and secured by cash donations, by pledges from individuals and 
■ganizations, or placed in the church budget. Several churches have not yet completed 
leir canvass. When all the churches have completed their canvass, I feel confident the 
ew Bern EHstrict will exceed its quota. Approximately $6,660.00 in cash already has 
•Jen sent to Dr. Morris. A proper foUow-up of this campaign will of coiurse be neces- 
'ry. 

Christian Missions and Church Extension: The continued interest of oiu* people in 
hristian missions both at home and abroad is evidenced by the activities of the local 
lurches through the work of the Commission on Missions, missions schools, mission 
jdies and workshops, and by their increased giving to World Service and Conference 
^nevolence, and also to Advance Specials. This year the churches have given in excess 
$12,000.00 to Advance Specials, which is an increase of $5,000.00 over last year. We 
JO have four churches that are partly supporting a missionary on the field. Our chiuxJi- 
have responded exceptionally well to the new system of the single figure apportion- 
:3nt. As of this date it appears that the New Bern District will accept at least 99^ of 
e single figure apportionment assigned to it, which will reflect an increase of about 
:'7,C00.00 over last year. 

Church extension also holds otir interest and attention. Several new Ten Dollar Club 
ibscriptions have been seciu-ed this year. During the year we have formally organized 
<e new church, St. Paul, Jacksonville, which is doing quite well imder the effective 
1 idership of the Reverend J. A. Tingle. 



198 North Carolina Annual Conference 

The 65 Women's Societies of Christian Service in the district are active and doing 
good work. We can always count on the women to do their share — and more. I want 
to pay special tribute to Mrs. J. H. Ipock, district president, for her dedicated and eflEi- 
cient leadership. 

Christian Social Concerns. There is a new interest and activity in the area of social 
concerns. More of the local church commissions are becoming active, and are not just 
paper commissions. These commissions have engaged in many helpful studies and proj-; 
ects this year, and many of the members attended the three subdistrict workshops held 
in the district this year on social concerns. Much more work, however, needs to be done i 
by the -local church commissions. Our chvu-ches need to become better informed and: 
more concerned about the many vital issues which face our nation and ovir world today, 
and a more inteUigent and Christian involvement in these issues. 

Lay Activities: Through the dedicated leadership of our district and associate dis-' 
trict lay leaders, our laymen are being awakened, renewed and challenged to a greateti 
participation in the total program of the church. Lay activities, lay speaking, lay witness 
missions, and lay training projects are making their impact upon the program of the 
church. The four lay witness missions, the 130 lay speakers, and the 35 Methodist Men's 
Clubs have made an outstanding contribution to the work of the kingdom in the district 
If the laymen of our chvirches can be truly awakened, spiritually renewed, and given a 
new vision of their potential, a new and better day will dawn on our local chiurches. I 
beheve that new day is drawing closer. 

Group Ministry: The East Carteret Group Ministry, under the direction of the Rev- 
erend J. T. Fisher, continues to move forward, and continues to plan and carry out a 
number of helpful cooperative projects in the ten Methodist churches east of Beaufort. 

Buildings and Firumces: Building activities continue to be brisk in the New Bern 
District, as evidenced by the following facts: 

a. Construction completed this year: Swansboro, a new sanctuary and education vmit, 
officially opened and consecrated on April 21st; Harlowe, enlarged sanctuary, additional 
church school rooms; Beech Grove, additional church school rooms; Trinity, New Bern, 
Paul, Jacksonville, new parsonage. 

b. Construction begun: Trinity, Jacksonville, new education building; Verona, re- 
building sanctuary and education unit destroyed by fire; North River, new education 
building; Midway, first unit of new church building. 

c. In planning stage: Garber, New Bern, new sanctuary; Salter Path, new sanctuary; 
Clarks, new sanctuary; St. James, Newport, new education building; Richlands, new^ 
education building; Merriman, additional church school rooms; Gum Branch, additional 
chiurch school rooms; Beech Grove, additional chvurch scholo rooms; Trinity, New Bern, 
new parsonage; St. Peter's, Morehead City, new parsonage. 

d. Reruwations: Franklin Memorial, parsonage. 

e. Dedications: Markers Island, new organ; Havelock: First Church, sanctuary and 
education unit. 

I feel that the New Bern District has done quite well in the area of finances this year. 
Although the district may not pay 100% of its conference items this year, we are work- 
ing hard for that goal and will come close to reaching it. During the year the churche.'^ 
have raised for aU church and parsonage building projects in excess of $210,000.00, and 
for all purposes more than three-quarters of a milhon dollars. For next year the churches 
have increased pastors' salaries a'bout $20,000.00 and the conference items about $17,- 
000.00. Our people are growing in grace and stewardship. 

Brief Six-Year Summary: Since this is my last year on the New Bern District, before 
closing my reiwrt, I want to give a brief svunmary of the work of the district. During 
the past six years, 6547 new members have been received into the chirrches. Pastors' 
salaries have increased $73,00.00. World Service and Conference Benevolences have in- 
creased $37,000.00. Nine new parsonages, eight new sanctuaries, and five new education 
buildings have been erected. Foiu: parsonages and two sanctuaries have been renovated 
For the 29 building projects completed the chiu-ches have raised one and one-half mil- . 
hon dollars. We now have 15 new building projects on the way which will cost approxi- 
mately $650,000.00. The total amount raised by the churches of the New Bern District i 
for all purposes during the past six years amounts ot almost six milUon doUars. This gives 
at least partial evidence that the Methodists in the New Bern District have been on the 
march, and are growing in grace and in Christian stewardship. 

I am profoundly grateful for the privilege of working with these fine jjeople for the 
past six years. At this Armual Conference I will not only leave the superintendency of 
the New Bern District, but also request the retired relationship after 42 years of preach- 



Journal of Proceedings 199 

ing the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. As I look back up)on those 42 years and count 
my blessings and reflect upon the goodness of God and The Methodist Church to me 
md my faithful companion, I feel like singing "Praise God from whom all blessings 
low." 

RALEIGH DISTRICT 
Nicholas W. Grant, Superintendent 

As the 26,000 members of the 72 churches in the Raleigh District work together to 
be effective in the mission committed to us, we have attempted to place much responsi- 
bility upon the local leadership both in the planning of their programs and in the exe- 
cution of the same. 

In the beginning of this report I would like to express appreciation for the outstand- 
ing work done by die lay leader of the district and his associates as the various causes 
)f the church were emphasized in subdistrict meetings. Two such rounds were made 
luring the year as we met in county units. In the first we attempted to give information 
1,-onceming the possibilities in the development of Camp Kerr Lake. Much interest was 
nanifested and approximately 40% of our goal of $50,000 was pledged or paid. Dviring 
:he second round the superintendent discussed the changes which had been made in 
lur conference apjKjrtiorraients and a group of laymen gave a full and frank discussion 
if ministerial support in the North CaroUna Conference. The following laymen were 
'. part of this panel: J. E. Legates, Robert Marley, L. H. Johnson, Preston Page, Graham 
iirissom, A. E. Goldfinch, and Lewis Word. The attendance which surpassed 350 from 
he local churches seemed quite interested in the discussion. A tangible result of this 
imphasis is seen in an increase of approximately $30,000 in ministers' salaries for next 
ear over the 1967-1968 conference year. 

Evangelism: Fifty of the 53 charges received at least one person into the member- 
hip of the church during the year. To date we have received 530 by profession of faith 
nd 1,025 by tiansfer of church letter. After deducting the losses we have had a net 
■icrease of 3%. 

Missions: Eighty-six authorized studies were held involving 3,200 persons. The 
laleigh Board of Missions and Church Extension continues to render a valuable service 
i church extension and in its inner-city work. Outstanding is the work of the Manly 
treet Day Nursery under the direction of the 20 churches of this city board, 
i Education: Dining the year our leaders have been attempting to make the necessary 
ansition from the old to the new teaching aids for adults. According to oiur records 
)4 adult classes are now using the new materials for adults. Two hundred and fifteen 
achers have taken advantage of the opportunities for organized teacher tiaining. We 
e now making plans for the intioduction of the new youth materials. 

Nineteen of the 72 churches have completed their College Capital Fund quotas. 
scently it was discovered that there are 267 yoimg people from the churches of the 
aleigh District who are receiving their education in chvurch-supported colleges and 
liversities. We hope that those churches which have some way to go in reaching their 
)als wiU not relax until they have finished. Every church in the Raleigh District has 
•;en given complete information concerning their standing in this cause. We are grateful 
r the efforts which have been made. The following churches are paid in full: Shady 
ove, Ebenezer, Henderson: First, and White Memorial, Plank Chapel, Knightdale, 
;bron, Warren Plains, Norhna, Raleigh: Benson Memorial, Cokesbury, Highland, MiU- 
ook, St. James, Tabernacle, Shocco, Wendell, Wesley Chapel, Louisburg, YoungsviUe. 
Social Concerns: Many and varied have been the efforts in the fields of social con- 
rns. It is quite p>ossible that much of our best and most effective work has been done 
this area even though it is hard to report. 

Stewardship: One of the greatest needs in the Raleigh District is an effective effort 
i stewardship tiaining. Until this is done we will never reach our potential. Approxi- 
iitely one-half of our chinches do not conduct any type of every-member cultivation 
( canvass. 

Building and Improvements: More than one-half million dollars has been paid on 
ivv construction or repairs to existing buildings. Extended improvements have been 
iide at Shady Grove, Henderson: First and White Memorial, Raleigh: Jenkins and 
'.inity, and Wendell. New construction is in the making for Pleasant Grove, Fuquay, 
i Andrews, Highland, Millbrook, St. James, and the Warren Charge. 
The Wake Forest-Youngsville and Zebulon Charges have dedicated their parsonages 



200 North Carolina Annual Conference 

and the Franklin Circuit parsonage is now free of debt. Plank Chapel education building 
will be dedicated in the near future. 

A special word of appreciation to Mrs. Wiley Bryan, district president of the Wom- 
an's Society of Christian Service, and to Dr. J. E. Legates, district lay leader, for their 
excellent leadership during this year. To both laymen and ministers who have had a pait 
in the successes oi the Raleigh District I wish to say, "thank youl" 

RCMUKY MOUNT DISTRICT 
J. W. Page, Superintendent 

The following report is made for the faithful ministers and laymen of the Rocky 
Mount District as a brief simunary of their stewardship for the 1967-1968 Confereaice 
year: 

Membership and Evangelism: Under the capable leadership of the Conference Ex- 
ecutive Director of Evangelism, Reverend Howard McLamb, and the District Secretary 
of Evangehsm, Reverend T. R. Jenkins, a full program of evangelism has been carried 
out in each charge. The ministers working with their Commissions on Membership and 
Evangelism planned and carried out a program of spiritual renewal and outreach in each 
church. The reports of the ministers to the Annual Conference will reflect the dedicated 
work done in the churches of the district. At this time a net gain in chvu-ch membership 
is indicated. 

Missions and Church Extension: The District Missionary Secretary is the Reverend 
J. Thomas Smith, and he has given dedicated and inspiring leadership in all phases of 
Missions and Church Extension. Study seminars were held for the training of both 
preachers and laymen in order to better equip them to plan and execute a School of 
Missions in their churches. It is gratifying to report that most of the churches held a 
school of missions. All the causes of Missions, World Service, and Conference Benev- 
olences, and all areas of Advance Specials have been promoted. 

Christian Higher Education: A great efiort has been made this year to complete the 
College Crusade in each church and, I am happy to report, several churches have been 
added to the honor roll. Grateful appreciation is hereby expressed to Reverend James 
Auman and Bishop Paul Garber for their help in inspiring leadership in Christian higher 
education. We shall continue to work to reach our College Crusade goal. A word of ap- 
preciation must be given to Dr. Thomas A. CoUins, president of North Carolina Wes- 
leyan College, for his dedicated leadership at the college, and for his help in giving 
inspiring leadership to the chiuches of the entire North Carolina Conference. 

Church School Work: The Reverend R. L. Baldridge continues to give efi^ective and 
dynamic leadership in all phases of Church School work. With the new literature al- 
ready being used in the Children's Division and the Adult Division, plans are now well 
under way for the new literature to be initiated in the Youth Division. Workshops are 
being planned for both ministers and youth leaders for this summer. Dr. C. P. Morris 
and his staff have given wise and helpful leadership in all phases of the educational 
program of the church. 

Lay Activities: Mr. Willis Mars-hall of Tarboro is the new lay leader. Mr. Marshall, 
with the very brotherly help and guidance of Mr. Roy Tiunage, Conference lay leader, 
and the cooperation of the associate lay leaders of the district, has given a well integrated 
program of lay activities. The annual Laymen's Rally was one of the best, and we are 
grateful to Bishop Paul Garber and Bishop Walter Gum for their inspiring messages. 
The new One-figure Asking budget for Conference Benevolences and World Service 
was presented at three subdistrict meetings and the participation by both ministers and 
laymen in these meetings was very gratifying. 

Stewardship and Finance: Early in January the ministers were brought together in 
order to explain to them the new One-figure Asking budget for next year. With the help 
of Reverend Charles Hubbard and Mr. W. T. Lamm, Jr. of World Service and Finance, 
the new budget plan was presented to both ministers and members of the local church 
commissions on Stewardship and Finance. As a result of these meetings, most of the 
ch;:-s;es of the district have accepted graciously the One-figure Asking for nevt year. 
Sill ' the pastor's salary is no longer related in a i>ercentage way to any other item of 
the dget, most of the charges have accepted an increase in pastor's salary for the com- 
ing )eivr. At the time of this report (April 15, 1968) it appears that the Rocky Mount 
District will accept about 97% of the One-figure Asking and the pastors' salaries of the 
district have been increased by about $12,000.00. 

WoTTj^, 's =^odety of Christian Service: Mrs. J. C. Reynolds of First Methodist 



Journal of Proceedings 201 

Church, Rocky Mount, is the new president for the Women's Society of Christian Serv- 
ice. The work of the women of the district continues to progress under the quiet but 
effective leadership of Mrs. Reynolds. Appreciation and gratitude is expressed to Mrs. 
L. G. Cook, the immediate past president of the District WSCS. Mrs. Sam Dunn of En- 
3eld, the immediate past president of the Conference WSCS, has given wholesome help 
ind guidance in all phases of the women's work, and appreciation is hereby expressed 
her. At the district meeting of the Women's Society of Christian Service at Marvin 
Vlethodist Church in April, Reverend and Mrs. J. W. Page were given Life Membership 
n the Society and were presented appropriate pens and scrolls. Words of appreciation 
md gratitude were spoken by both Mr. and Mrs. Page for this high honor. The faithful 
vomen of the Rocky Mount District continue their hard work and devoted leadership 
n all phases of the life of the church, and my deep personal appreciation is expressed 
10 them. 

Building and Repairs: First Methodist Church in Roanoke Rapids is now in a build- 
ng program. Its new church will be ready for use in the spring of 1969. Shiloh, on the 
Taston charge, is in the planning stage for a new church. St. James Church in Tarboro 
;as recently occupied a lovely new Educational building. New Educational buildings 
re in the planning and early construction stage at Black Creek and Jackson. St. Paul 
Church has recently been completely redecorated and new lighting fixtures have been 
dded to the sanctuary. The Conway Church had added an additional heating unit, and 
he chvu-ch has been completely air-conditioned. Homes Church has erected a lovely 
ew outside bulletin board. Pinetops Church has raised $8,605.00 toward a new church 
uilding. A new Baldwin Organ has been purchased and installed by the Red Oak 
^urch. Most of the chiurches of the district have purchased and are using the new 
lethodist Hymnal. 

Parsonages: The parsonage at Evansdale-Black Creek has been recently renovated, 
"he kitchen and dining rooms were helpfully changed and a new utihty room was add- 
d. A new heating and air-conditioning unit was installed at the Homes parsonage. On 
unday, March 17th, Bishop Paul Garber and the District Superintendent dedicated a 
ew Memorial Chapel (Kitchin family) in the Scotland Neck Methodist Church, and 
le new parsonage. Extensive repairs and redecorations were made on the Seaboard 
arsonage.

SANFORD DISTRICT 
Vergel E. Qxjeen, Superintendent 

The Sanford District is composed of 82 local churches, arranged in 45 charges lo- 
tted in five counties, and served by 45 pastors. These churches and their leaders here- 
^th submit this annual report of their achievements with an humble awareness that 
Bse statistics merely symbolize what might have been accomplished with more moti- 
Ition, planning, and skill. 

Building and Debt Retirement: There has been a steady growth in church and par- 
nage building, improvements to church property, and debt retirement. A total of 
18,203.00 has been paid on old debts; $53,463.00 has been spent on improving prep- 
ay, while $14,568.00 has gone for parsonage improvements. 

In the fall of 1967, the Norman Church opened its new activity building, greatly 
ding to its facilities. On Pahn Sunday, April 7, Bishop Garber dedicated the Fellow- 
ip Church in Hamlet, and in the afternoon grotmd was broken for the first unit of 
3 new Saint Luke project in Laurinburg — to be built at a cost of some $65,000.00. 

Fair Promise Church on the Glendon Charge, installed new art glass windows at a 
I St of more than $2,000.00, adding great beauty to its sanctuary. 

During the year, the Caledonia congregation completely renovated its sanctuary, 
iding new carpets, paint, and a re-styled chancel. 

The Snead's Grove-Tabemacle Charge purchased a new parsonage costing $28,- 
(0.00, and the Central-Johns Charge of Laurinburg, has let the contract for a new 
irsonage to be built in Myers Park at a cost of nearly $25,000.00. 

The Sanford district parsonage furnishings were completed dtuing the year, and 



202 North Carolina Annual Conference 

paved driveways and walks were laid at a cost of better than $2,000.00. A total of 
$6,330.00 has been paid on the indebtedness. 

Members of the Ten Dollar Club within the Sanford District have given $4,000.00 
in assistance to the building of churches for newly-formed congregations. 

Christian Education: There are 80 local church schools in the district vdth a reported 
enrollment of 12,679 — a decline of over 1,200 during the year. 

Christian Workers' Schools have been held in each of the subdistricts, and in the fall 
of 1967 the camp crusade was laimched. Already approximately $2,000.00 has been 
raised on this project. 

Considerable attention has been given to charges with unpaid obligations to the col- 
lege crusade, and although the results were disappointing, we have raised better than 
$6,500.00 on the crusade. It remains to be seen whether our churches v^dll honor their 
quotas in this undertaking. 

Membership and Evangelism: During the annual conference year, 58 protracted 
meetings were held and 44 membership training classes enrolhng 315 persons were 
organized and completed. There has been 267 baptisms — 112 infants and 155 adults. 
Total additions to church membership were: profession of faith, 250; from other de- 
nominations, 70; and from other Methodist churches, 257 — a total of 577 new members. 

Missions: Missionary education is the bright spot in our district story. Schools of 
missions were planned and conducted in most churches with splendid attendance and 
interest. 

The new One Figure Apportiormient plan has been well received by the charges. 
Our apportionment was fixed at $260,400.00 — an increase of $22,893.00 — and accept- 
ances are running better than 90% at this reporting. Over $4,000.00 has been received 
this year on various Advance Specials. 

The Women's Society of Christian Service has given inspired leadership in its field , 
of endeavor under the guidance of the district president, Mrs. J. Nelson Gibson, Jr., and ' 
the Conference president-elect, Mrs. Harold Maim. 

Lay Activities: The district program of lay activities is led by Mr. T. Roy PhiUips, 
the district lay leader, and an able body of associates. Every phase of lay activities has 
been emphasized during the year. The district superintendent has encouraged training 
for all lay personnel, especially the lay leaders. The "No-Silent Ptdpit" program has 
completed its best year yet, and we are attempting to refine and rejuvenate our Meth- 
odist Men's organizations. 

General Observatior^s ■ These are troubled days for the church. We carry two des- 
perate needs : 1 ) laymen who are willing to leave all and become resjxjnsible church- 
men, and 2) mature and competent pastors who are called and committed — ^wiUing to 
study, think, work, and preach — men who know, cherish, and love the doctrines and 
program of ovu* historic Methodism. 

WILMINGTON DISTRICT 
Clyde G. McCarver, Superintendent 

The Wilmington District is grateful to have the privilege of giving an accotmt of 
her stewardship of the opportunities given her to minister in the name of her Lord. 
We are not satisfied with the attainments made, but we are grateful for the blessings 
which we have enjoyed as we have worked together this year. 

Membership and Evangelism • Some of our local churches have made a serious effort 
to correct some mistakes in the statistical record of membership. As of April 18, 1968, 
we received 224 on profession of faith, 89G by transfer, and have a net gain of 600. 
Total, 15,120. 

Christian Education: Our church schools gained 693 net membership and have 
9,860 members as of April 18, 1968. We have participated in the total Conference plan 
of Christian education as it relates to the use of new hteratures, camps crusade, leader- 
ship training sessions, etc. While not all of our chiu-ches have paid the College Crusade 
pledge in full, we feel that our people have participated in a gracious way to the success 
of this endeavor. Under the general leadership of the Reverend T. J. Whitehead, the 
cause of Christian education has been adequately presented throughout the Wilmington 
District. The Reverend Thomas Fulcher has provided splendid leadership for the youth. 

Lay Activities: Wilmington District enjoys the dignified and consecrated leadership 
of one of the great laymen of the North Carolina Annual Conference — Mr. Wade Pierce, 
His equally dedicated staff of associate lay leaders has given good accounts of the 



Journal of Proceedings 203 

charges committed to it. Our "No-Silent Pulpit" program enjoyed success again this 
year. It would be impossible to name each of the individuals or to give proper credit 
to the many contributions of time and talent given by the lay speakers. They have 
worked long and hard. Some six himdred laymen heard a dynamic address by Mr. Char- 
lie McCullers at our district lay rally. It was among the best lay rallies ever held on the 
Wilmington District. 

Woman's Society of Christian Service: Mrs. J. C. Murdock and her officers have 
given splendid leadership and made significant contributions to the kingdom this year. 
iOur abiding gratitude is extended to Mrs. Murdock as her years of service as president 
come to a close, due to the recent ruling of the Women's Society of Christian Service. 
She has wTought well the work which she has set out to do. There are, according to 
the recent reports of the pastors, 2,136 members of the Women's Society of Christian 
'iervice within the Wilmington District. 

, Building and Improvements: The amount of $258,721 has been spent on building 
mprovements and debts on property. The following new buildings have been completed 
his year: Shiloh (Bolton), a new sanctuary; Chadboum, a new parsonage; Hallsboro, 
I new parsonage; Harrells, a new parsonage; Ocean View, remodeled a parsonage; 
50uthport, a new educational building and remodeled the present one; Tabor City, 
addition of a lovely steeple; Shiloh (Towti Creek), a new educational building; Wesley's 
Dhapel, a new educational building, renovated the parsonage, and remodeled the sanc- 
uary; Epworth, renovated the sanctuary and educational facilities. The following proj- 
ects have been started or are to begin before this report is read: Carver's Creek, re- 
nodeling sanctuary and building a new educational building; Clarkton, a new sanctuary 
md educational building; Harrells (Westview Church), a new sanctuary; Ocean View, 
. new educational addition and renovation of sanctuary; Rocky Point (Herrings Church), 
new sanctuary; Wesley Memorial, a new educational building; Pine Valley, new edu- 
ational addition. 

Finances: To the extent of the participation of almost every charge, the Wilmington 
,)istrict has accepted the Single Figure Askings vAth a glad heart! We are confident that 
,/e shall accept the full expectations of the Conference. We have reason to expect that 
i^e records at the conclusion of this Annual Conference will show that each church on 
;be district has paid in full those conference claims justly expected. As with all the sec- 
ons above, the figures quoted as based on the repnarts of 35 of the 45 charges within 
le district. Based on those Quarterly Conferences which have been held up to April 
7, we have had acceptance of $114,896 on the Single Figure and $15,000 increase on 
,astors' salaries. There are, at the time of the writing of this report, ten more Quarterly 
Conferences to be heard from. Therefore, the financial records are far from complete! 
jV'e shall have more increases in each area as a result of these meetings. 

The fine ministers who have given cooperation are to be commended. It has been 
lese men, plus consecrated lay leadership, who have made the report and measure of 
iccess possible. I sincerely thank aU for the work done and the privilege of serving 
nong them.

IREPORT OF COMMISSION ON CHRISTIAN SOCIAL CONCERNS 

INTRODUCTION 

Jesus Christ is not only Head of the Church but is also the sovereign Lord of all hfe. 
'ience to his conmiand to love our neighbors and oiur enemies requires that the 
:h work to achieve a just social order. 

In our historic position we have sought to follow Christ in bringing the whole of Me, 
■ith its activities, possessions, and relationships, into conformity with the will of God. 

As Methodists we have an obligation to afiirm our positions on social and economic 

aestions. The Methodist church must view the perplexing times and problems which 

3 face today in the hght of the hfe and teachings of Jesus. Jesus taught us to love our 

sighbors and to seek justice for them as weU as for ourselves. To be silent in the face 

need, injustice, and exploitation is to deny him. 

How the church speaks and acts in the crucible of human events clarifies or obsciures 
e hving presence of Jesus Christ today. Achieving a more just social order requires not 
Jy the redemption of individuals but also the converting of the systems of society 
lich so profoundly influence the hfe of the individual. What has often been said must 

said again. The Church of Jesus Christ in a free society not only has the right but 
io the duty to study and to speak and to act upon issues, no matter how controversial, 

the realm of pohtics, economics and social affairs, in view of its common faith in 
.ius Christ as both Savior and Lord. For all matters of concern for human beings are 
letters of concern to the churches and to the churches' Lord. 



206 North Carolina Annual Conference 

Mr. J. Irwin Miller of Indianapolis, Indiana, president of the Cummins Diesel Com 
pany and a great Christian layman, spoke of this responsiblHty of the church when h( 
said: "My own admitted layman's knowledge of Christianity has always led me to believ( 
that the tradition of which we are a part, from the Ten Commandments through th< 
prophets of the Old Testament, down to Jesus Christ and the apostles, has been one o 
concern not only for man's individual faith but also for his individual social behavior, 
and that of society to the various groups in society as well. The care of the sick, feedinj 
of the hungry, hberation of the oppressed, justice and mercy for everyone have alway; 
been proper concerns of die rehgious man according to our tradition. If the chtircl 
does not speak on such matters, I do not know who will in our society, and as one lay 
man daily involved in the busy Ufe of our times, I think all of us need such a voice." 

We beheve that all persons have supreme value in the sight of God, and ought t< 
be so regarded by us. We test all institutions and practices by their effect upon the dig 
nity, the welfare, and the freedom of persons. Since Jesus Christ died for the redemptioj 
of all men, we believe we shovdd Hve to help save man from sin and from every influeno 
which would harm or destroy him. 

Through all of its history Methodism has sought to relate the gospel which it ha 
preached to the life of its members and to the communities in which they have lived 
To lift up before the members of the church and also the sectdar world the Christiai 
concern for personal, social, and civic righteousness, to analyze the issues which con 
front the nation and the world, as well as the local county and the person, and to pro 
pose Christian Unes of action, there is a Board of Christian Social Concerns at the na 
tional and conference levels and Commissions of Christian Social Concerns in ever 
local Methodist church.

Emerson M. Thompson, Jr., Secretary

social concerns, race relations, extremist movements, civil liberties, apphcation of demo- 
cratic principles related to voting, pubhc policy on education, church and state relations 
labor-management relations, agriculture, conservation, government and private eco- 
nomic policy and practice, technological and social change, employment, poverty, urban 
ization, housing, and such concerns as the board may specify. 

It can be readily seen that the Conference Board of Christian Social Concerns doe; 
not have the human and financial resources to implement programs in all of these areas 
Nevertheless, it needs to keep reminding our people that Methodists as Christians anc 
as good citizens have an increasing responsibility to seek for Christian answers to the 
bewildering social problems that confront our nation and our world. 

The walls of misunderstanding, suspicion, and strife at times seem high and insur- 
mountable. Political and ideological differences, class and race walls threaten to destroy* 
personal, community, national and international peace. Recent events in our own counj 
try cause every thoughtful person to realize that civil disorder is a very real and serious 
threat. 



JouBNAL OF Proceedings 209 

The times call for Christian restraint and patience. Churchmen should be the first 
in their communities to work for racial tmderstanding. They should be in the forefront 
of the struggle against injustice, discrimination, poverty, and ignorance. All churches 
of the community should join hands in programs aimed at lifting the economic, educa- 
tional, social and spiritual level of those at the bottom of the ladder. 

The headstrong and irresponsible tactics of extremists are the greatest barriers to 
good human relations. Both leftwing and righhving extremists continue to stir up strife, 
to divide families and communities and people. Churchmen should not line up with any 
of these groups, but should expose them for v/hat they are — reckless, mad extremists 
who would turn our country into a totalitarian state either socialist or fascist. 

Of course, there is a place for "both the conscientious liberal and the conscientious 
conservative. Moreover, we need to debate the great issues in an atmosphere of mutual 
respect. In this way we can arrive at a course of action on which a majority may be 
able to agree. 

The Division this year, aware of the menace of extremism, has sponsored two work- 
shops on Extremism on the Right. The first was held at Jarvis Memorial Church, Green- 
ville, on March 9 and the second was held at Edenton Street Church, Raleigh, on April 
2. Many have felt that workshops dealing with extremism should be held in local 
'churches. 

We pay tribute once more to David S. Coltrane and his staflF in their efi^orts through 
,the Good Neighbor Council to establish and maintain interracial communications in 
difficult times. We commend also the thousands of people of good vdll of both races 
as they labor together for better relations. 

The voice of good vn\l and brotherhood must be heard above the raucous, bitter, 
^vindictive railings of the extremists. 

Our generation looks to the chm-ch for leadership in these times of division and 
strife. To be indifferent or timid or silent at this critical hour is to deny the high calling 
of our Lord. We particularly urge laymen and ministers to cooperate fully with our 
bishop and the Cabinet in receiving the churches of the Central Jurisdiction that lie 
within our Conference. What we do during the next two or three years viall have impli- 
bations far beyond the bounds of our Conference.

RECOMMENDED LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM FOR 1968-69 

il (Supplement to Report in Book of Reports from this point on. Editor) 

The Board recommends support for the following legislation wihich has been agreed 
iipon by the leadership of 22 statewide civic, church, and social organizations in the 
>tate Legislative Council in wihich this Board and oiu- Conference Women's Society of 
Christian Service have membership. Reverend Leo C. Thompson is the Board's Legisla- 
ive Representative on this Council. 

1. Mandatory Licensing of Day Care Facilities 

While the State Department of Pubhc Welfare, working with other puibUc agencies 
m the Inter-Agency Committee on Day Care, has licensed day care faciHties on a vol- 
untary basis since 1926, it has done so without legal authority to close facihties im- 
villing to meet acceptable standards. There is a great need for mandatory licensing along 
^'ith adequate inspection. According to a study made by the Research Triangle Institute, 
1: is estimated that as of January 1967, there were 965 facihties in the state providing 
ull-day care for children, 800 facihties providing half-day care, and 35 facUities vvdth 
peeial programs. Of the estimated 965 full-day care facilities, about 3.50 are now being 
censed on a voluntary basis. The need for mandatory licensing will increase as more 
nd more women return to the labor market. Projected estimates indicate that by 1970 
pproximately 360,000 children imder six will require some type of day care. At present, 
nly 10,266 children are cared for in facilities which are voluntarily licensed. Forty-ifour 
ounties in North Carohna have no voluntarily licensed facilities whatever, 17 counties 
avc only one licensed facihty. Mandatory licensing will mean that all children being 
laced for care are afforded the protection of minimum standards and regulations deal- 
ig with health, safety, and environmental factors. The purpose of mandatory licensing, 
long with inspection, is to help bring facilities up to acceptable standards. Where de- 
lorable conditions exist, state law should provide the means to change these situations, 
orty-seven states and the District of Oolumibia now have mandatory day care licensing 



210 North Carolina Annual Conference 

laws. North Carolina needs to regulate t§iis growing industry on a statewide basis now, 
in order to protect its greatest resource — its children. 

2. Consumer Protection Legislation 

Consumer credit in North Carolina is growing, and is thought to be a $2.5 billion 
business in this state, although there is Httle information available as to its exact size. 
It is an unregulated business since there is no statutory law in North Carolina which pro- 
tects the consimier in credit piu-ohases. There is minimal protection for the consumer 
when he borrows money, but even less when he is involved in credit or installment buy- 
ing. Because there are now noi regulations in North Carolina dealing with the consumer 
credit business, consumers often pay finance charges that range from 30% to 40% a year. 
Forty states have statutory laws which provide a meastu-e of protection in the matter erf 
consumer credit. Federal legislation dealing wdth what is known as "truth-in-lending" 
is now pending. This proposed legislation calls for full disclosiue of charges only, and 
does not attempt to set interest rates or state service charges. The State Legislative 
Council, mindful of the proposed legislation at the federal level, favors legislation on the 
state level that would provide safeguards for the consxuner by adequately regulating 
the consumer transactions of all lending and credit institutions. The pubhc has a right 
to such protection. 

3. Abolishment of the Death Penalty 

As the North Carolina law now stands, the death penalty can be imposed for first 
degree murder, rape, first degree arson, and first degree burglary. The State Legislative 
Council has worked for the repeal of this law for many years. It would seem that we are 
getting closer to the goal of total abolition. An indication of the growing interest in this j 
issue came during the 1967 session of the General Assembly. Five bills were introduced 
that in one way or another sought to limit or abohsh the death penalty. The State Legis- 
lative Council supported Representative Sneed High's biU which called for total abolition j 
of tiie death penalty. It was defeated 69 to 41, but received more votes than those bills 
which sought merely to limit the death penalty. The marked trend in favor of abolition 
can furdier be noted by the fact that in the past three sessions votes have risen from 9 
to 41. Thirteen states have now eliminated the death penalty and none show that there 
has been an increase in capital crimes. To the contrary, the five states wdth the highest 
number of murder rates have carried out more executions than almost any other state^ 
while the five with the lowest rates have abolished the death penalty. This evidence 
would refute the major argument of those who would retain the death penalty on the 
grounds that it acts as a deterrent. Those who oppose capital punis'hment state that the 
death penalty is not an effective deterrent, that it ignores modem rehabihtation meth- 
ods, that it punishes beyond remedy some who are later proved innocent, that it falls on 
the poor, the ignorant, the friendless, the male sex and Negroes, and that it is, in the 
final analysis, legalized killing. Opponents of capital punishment include penologists, 
judges, lawyers, ministers and laymen. 

THE DIVISION OF ALCOHOL PROBLEMS AND GENERAL WELFARE 

In fight of the widespread distortion of the General Conference action concerning the 
use of beverage alcohol presented in the press, we recommend that local commissions on 
Christian Social Concerns secure and disseminate the exact wording of the General Con- 
ference action and that they interpret accurately the intent of the General Conference. 

We reaffirm our previous stand of opposition to all efforts to weaken our North Caro- 
lina hquor control laws and permit "liquor-by-the-drink." We are also in opposition to 
any legislative change in our existing law to legahze distilleries in North Carohna. We 
believe this will be a year of fateful decision in North Carolina where powerful financial 
and vested interests are organizing to increase the sale and consumption of alcoholic 
beverages. We urge our next governor to take a strong stand against Hquor by the drink 
and to oppose any efforts which would increase the sale and consiunption of alcohofic 
beverages in North Carohna. We urge the General Assembly of North Carolina to utilize 
more fully revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages for rehabilitation of alcoholics. 

We commend the Christian Action League and its director, the Reverend D. P. Mc- 
Farland, for their vigorous and dedicated program to educate youth and adults in local 
churches and in the public schools as to the effects of alcohol consumption and their 
continued opposition to laws that favor the liquor industry. 

We commend the Good Shepherd Home at Lake Waocamaw and its director, the 



Journal of Proceedings 211 

Reverend J. C. Dunn, for their dedicated work toward a Christian rehabdhtation of al- 
cohohcs. 

We recognize the growing pressures in America to legaHze various forms of gambling. 
Therefore, we vuge local churches to take seriously this rising menace to the spiritual life 
of our people and to utihze fully the educational resources of our church concerning tfie 
Christian moral and economic impHcations of this threat, esipecially among our youth. 

We encourage members of the local Commission on Christian Social Concerns to 
become actively involved in community action and mental health programs to minister 
to the mentally ill and the mentally retarded. 

HIGHWAY SAFETY 

Traffic fatalities claimed 57,000 hves last year and appear to be on the increase. 
Since the safety of human Hfe is a moral and religious concern, we call upon our people 
to assume greater responsibiUty in helping to eliminate the causes of accidents. 

We commend Governor Dan Moore for calling together the rehgious leadens of 
of North Carolina for a Traffic Safety Conference and for his proclamation of June SO- 
SO, 1968, as Rehgious Concern for Traffic Safety Days in North Carolina. The com- 
mandment, "Thou shalt not kill," is a mandate covering reckless, careless, or irrespon- 
sible use of a motor vdhicle as much as it does the indiscriminate pointing of a loaded 
firearm. We call ujxjn all Methodist ministers and laymen to bring tiiis moral and spirit- 
ual issue before the people called Methodists in local ohiu-ch observance of these special 
days. 

Ministers and local church Commissions on Christian Social Concerns are urged to 
secure the excellent resource hst of church safety materials from the Religious Activities 
Department, National Safety Council, 425 N. Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60611. 
A helpful anthology, "He Rides Beside You (The Spiritual Side of Our Traffic Prob- 
lem)," a collection of speeches, articles, and prayers for use by the clergy and other 
speakers, is available from Stromberg Allen and Co., 430 S. Clark Street, Chicago, 111. 

We especially ask for increased efforts) to save lives from death on the highways by 
encouraging law enforcement, sui>porting legislation to make our highways safer and by 
developing a keener sense of moral responsibility toward this national problem. We urge 
our ohiirohes to cooperate with state and local committees for highway safety and widi 
other existing groups who serve the cause of accident prevention.

GENERAL CONFERENCE PRONOUNCEMENTS 

The Rule of Law and the Right to Dissent 

The increasing stresses in oiu society, growing out of strong differences over the war 
in Vietnam and the perpetuation of racial discrimination at home, make it essential that 
ive understand the nature and imphcations of dissent, civil disobedience to the law and 
seeking within the law redress for wrongs. 

j, As Christians we seek God's will for our lives. We realize that at times of conflict we 
• fire called upon "to obey God rather than man" and hence may find ourselves at odds 
J vith temporal authority. At the same time we are constrained to act in humility and in 
] he spirit of reconcihation. In this spirit we state the following affirmations: 

One, we affirm the value and necessity of a society rooted in law and of a citizenry 

' vho respect law. No society can long continue without justice and order, and these can- 

' lot exist unless the members of a society adhere to the rule of law. When particular 

■ wovisions of law are unwise or unjust, the citizen must seek correction through the law's 

>rovision for change, i.e., in the courts or the legislature or to reconstitute law-making 



.xxlies through the democratic process 



Ij A rule of law is dependent upon the respect and support of the citizenry as well as 
in its obedience. Therefore, the provisions and processes of the law must merit respect 
nd supjjort. They must be constantly tended and improved by the hands of those sensi- 
ve to injustice. Laws must be drafted, interpreted, and administered in terms of man's 
ighest moral insights. This is the way to that rule of law which will afford society the 
istice and order it requires. 

Nevertheless, in our day as in other times, there are p>ersons who under conscience 
aimot obey a given law or who have found that their attempts to change a law or to 



212 North Carolina Annual Conference 

secure redress for their grievances have fallen on deaf ears or have been rejected. We 
understand how, in such circumstances, they must "obey God rather than man." 

Two, we then affirm the right of dissent as an essential ingredient of any democratic 
society. The right of everyone to dissent is in jeopardy when the right of anyone is de- 
nied. 

In a time of intense controversy and conflict, we call attention to the American heri- 
tage, which has provided for the right of dissent. As a nation whose very historic and 
cherished freedoms were forged by dissent, we believe that in our time the interests of 
our common life may, in certain specific instances, be served best by those who dissent 
from the policies and actions of his government when he believes them to be immoral 
and unjust. At the same time, we urge that all expressions of dissent be responsible and 
witliin a basic commital to a non-violent means. 

Three, we afi^irm the right of civil disobedience in extreme cases as a viable option 
in a democracy and as a sometime requirement for Christians who are to have no other 
God than the God of Jesus Christ. By civil disobedience we mean the deliberate and non- 
violent disobeying of a law beheved to be unjust or unconstitutional, and the wiUingness 
to accept penalties for that violation. 

When a civil disobedient has a fundamental respect for legal institutions of society 
and is prepared to accept penalties for disobedience, there is littie threat to the basic 
concept of the rule of law. 

We believe that such disobedience under conscientious control does not justify, nor 
would it encourage, widespread casual and indiscriminate violation of law. Some may 
misinterpret the civU disobedient's motivation and action, and respond accordingly, but 
this is one of the risks that must be taken in a society that gives some autonomy to an 
informed and sensitive conscience. We believe that not only the individual who protests, 
but freedom of religion and the best interests of the society itself, will be served by this 
freedom for conscientious action. 

Four, we affirm the right of clergymen and others to counsel persons on problems of 
conscience. 

B. On Alcohol 

1. As a part of The Report on the Ministry: 

a. Original statement: 

"For the sake of discipUned example are you willing to make a complete dedi- 
cation of yourself to the highest ideals of the Christian ministry vidth respect to 
purity of life in body, in mind and in spirit, and to bear vvdtness thereto by ab- 
stinence from all indulgences, including alcoholic beverages and tobacco which 
may injure youi influence?" 

b. Revised statement: 

"For the sake of the mission of Jesus Christ in the world and the most effective 
witness to the Christian gospel, and in consideration of your influence as a min- 
ister, are you willing to make a complete dedication of yoinrself to the ihighest 
ideals of the Christian Hfe as set forth in Paragraphs 93, 94, and 95, Discipline 
of the United Methodist Churdh, and to this end, will you agree to exercise 
responsible self-contiol by personal habits conducive to bodily health, mental 
and emotional maturity, social responsibility, and growth in grace and in the 
knowledge and love of God?" 

Par. 318.7: "Every candidate for the ministry of the United Methodist Church 
shall have ... (7) agreed for the sake of the mission of Jesus Christ in the 
world and the most effective witness to the Christian gospel and in considera- 
tion of his influence as a minister to make a complete dedication of himself to 
the highest ideals of the Christian hfe as set forth in Par. 93 ( General Rulesi of 
the Methodist Church), Par. 94 (The Methodist Social Creed), and Par. 95 
(Basic Behefs Regarding Social Issues and Moral Standards of the EUB 
Church , Discipline of the United Methodist Churdh, and to this end, agreed to 
exercise resiponsible self-control by personal habits, conducive to bodily health, j|- 



Journal of Proceedings 213 

mental and emotional maturity, social responsibility, and growth in grace and 
in knowledge and love of God." 

2. As a part of a statement on Drug and Alcohol Concerns, presented by the Com- 
mittee on Christian Social Concerns: 

"To implement United Methodist concern for the problem of alcohol and drug 
abuse as expressed in the Social Creed and in the resolution on 'The Adoptive 
Society,' the second Sunday in November will be observed to emphasize Drug 
and Aloohohc Concerns for the purpose of: 

d. Encouraging abstinence from the use of alcoholic beverages as one form of 
personal and social vvdtness to God's liberating love for mankind." 

RESOLUTION 

We are deeply shocked by the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy of New 
York. We extend to his family our deepest sympathy and assure them of oiir sincerest 
prayers. 

This assassination brings shame and disgrace upon our beloved nation. We sense our 
corporate guilt for our apathy and failure to correct the injustice and chmate of hate and 
violence that triggered his assassination and that of his brother, President John Kennedy, 
and of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Our society cannot afford the continued loss by violence of its- national leaders. 

Therefore, we urge each local church in the North CaroUna Conference to work 
actively to establish a climate of Christian love and justice and to become effective in- 
struments of reconciliation. 

We commend President Johnson in his appointment of a special commission to 
.study violence in our nation and we join him in his call to observe Sunday, June 9, 1968, 
as a national day of mourning. 

RESOLUTION 

Interim Housing Maintenance 

I. We call on the govemmg bodies of all municipalities and counties in North Caro- 
ina to enact and to enforce laws requiring that all residential rental property be kept 
n functionally good repair or be removed from the rental market, thus policing or reg- 
ilating this vital commerce for the protection of the tenant. 

II. We call on all Methodists and other citizens owning residential rental property to 
practice the ethic of the golden rule in keeping said property in good repair, and those 
vho rent to abide by the same ethic. 

III. We call on our chiu-ches to consider immediate and long-range housing needs in 
he lowest income residential areas, and to give time, leadership, labor, and money to 

eet both kinds of needs, forming work groups jointly with other churches of both races. 



r 



Whereas, the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, 
and Senator Robert F. Kennedy have shocked our nation into an awareess of the 
asy accessibility of firearms by criminals and those mentally incompetent to bear them. 



RESOLUTION ON FIREARMS CONTROL 



In adopting the statement in Par. 318.7 on the moral and social responsibility of 
linisters, the General Conference seeks to elevate the standards by calling for a more 
loroughgoing moral commitment by the candidate and for a more careful and thorough 
xamination of candidates by district committees and Boards of Ministry. The legislation 
\ no way implies that the use of tobacco is a morally indifferent question. In the light 
f the developing evidence against the use of tobacco, the burden of proof would be upon 
ny user to show that his use of it is consistent with the highest ideals of the Christian 
|fe. Similarly, regarding beverage alcohol, the burden of proof would be upon any user 
p show that his action is consistent with the ideals of excellence of mind, purity of body, 
responsible social behavior. 
Therefore, the changes here are not to be interpreted as relaxing the traditional view 
nceming the use of tobacco and beverage alcohol by ministers of The United Method- 
Churoh. Rather they call for higher standards of self-discipline and habit formation 
all personal and social relationships. They call for dimensions of moral commitment 
t go far beyond any specific practices which might be listed. 



214 North Carolina Annual Conference 

and 

Whereas, approximately 18,000 Americans die annually from intentional and ac- 
cidental shootings by all types of firearms, and 

Whereas, the growing unrest in the cities is worsened through potential rioters' easy 
access to firearms, 

Therefore, be it resolved: 

I. That the North Carolina Annual Conference commend Conigress for passing the 
hand-gun control section of the Crime BUI. 

II. That this conference call for the following: 

A. Strict federal regulation of mail order sales of rifles and shotguns. 

B. A federal registration of all guns if individual states fail to do so, aooording 
to the recommendations of the Federal Crime Commission. 

C. The purchase of firearms permits wbioh require positive identification of both 
individuals who now possess firearms and those who propose to buy them, so as to reduce 
their possession by felons, the mentally incompetent, and minors, and, 

D. A reasonable waiting period between application and issuing of the above 
permits to enable applicants with rash motives to "cool off." 

III. That the local churches in the North Carolina Conference study the issues: re- 
lated to misuse of firearms, and 

IV. That we urge church members in our conference to send individual letters and 
telegrams to their congressmen caUing for adoption of the above legislation and to write 
to newspaper editors expressing their concerns for stricter firearms oontol. 

STATEMENT ON "THE CRISIS IN THE NATION" 

Our nation is experiencing its worst domestic crisis in the last lOO years. Divisions 
between rich and poor, black and white, young and old are steadily widening. This polar- 
ization of attitudes threatens to erupt into tragic and massive destruotian of people and 
property. 

Taking into account both the national crisis and the request of this Cbnferenice for 
specific suggestions from this Board on what we can do about the situation in our local 
ohvurohes and communities this summer, we strongly urge every charge in the North 
Oarohna Conference to begin with a study/ action group dealing with the crisis as soon as 
possible. All pastors have received a mailing from our General Board of Education re- 
garding our United Methodist Packet on "The Crisis in the Nation." The cost is $3.85 
per packet and this thorougli compilation of resource material can be ordered from Cokes- 
bury. An annotated list of the packet's contents is found on pages 36-37 of the June issue 
of The Methodist Story-Spotlight. j 

The principal tool in this packet is the booklet Crisis In America: Hope Through At- | 
tion, which is designed to serve as a guide for considering the various aspects of our •' 
national crisis. Although it contains a very specific Hst of over thirty action suggestions 
through which it hopes America's " 'sUent good people' will become the acting servants 
of the Lord," the booklet also contains the following statement in its Introduction: 

"There are no experts on the crisis in our nation. You do not need to read a hun- 
dred books or hear a thousand lectures. Many policies and siire-fire answers have 
been advanced, but they are all challenged by others. We must rely on one another 
if we are to discover the answers we all urgently need. The best place to begin is 
right where you are, seeking with others to understand the situation that involves 
us all whether we Uve in a small town, a subvu^b, or the city itself." 

We call upon each pastor and charge in our Conference to begin immediately this 5 
search for understanding and we enthusiastically join our General Boards of Missions, I 
Evangelism, Laity, Education, Christian Social Concerns, and Publication in recommend- ( 
ing the purchase and use of the resource packet, "The Crisis in the Nation," as an effec- 
tive instrmnent in this search.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON CONFERENCE ENTERTAINMENT 

This is one committee whidh has not met during the quadrennium but each year it 
has had an answer ready when Question 48 was called by the bis'hop. We are grateful 
to the communities that have made this possible. 

To date we have not received an assurance of an invitation for the 1969 Conference. 
Several communities have been asked and we are still expecting an answer.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON ANNUAL CONFERENCE 
CORPORATIONS 

(See lourrwl, 1967, p. 22) 

Whereas, the Committee on Annual Conference Corporations began as a study 
committee, authorized by the 1959 Annual Conference (See Journal, 1959, pp. 245-246), 
the committee became a "standing committee" by action of the 1963 Annual Confer- 
ence. (See Journal, 1963, p. 266). The work of the committee Is reported In Journals 
1960 through 1967; and 

Whereas, as a "standing committee" of the North Carolina Annual Conference, the 
icommittee, pursuant to its authority, recommended changes In the Charters of the cor- 
porations of the Conference as were needed, and assisted in the preparation of the 
Amendments to the Charters of the corporations as were required by the North Carolina 
\nnual Conference. 

Now, therefore, as a "standing committee" of the North Carolina Annual Confer- 
ence, the committee shall continue to be concerned with further improvements of the 
Charters of the present corix)ratlons, as may be needed, and the committee shall give 
'^idance in the preparation of Charters of all new corporations authorized by the North 
Harohna Annual Conference. The committee shall also review and recommend as to all 
proposed Amendments to the Charters of the corporations, and the committee shall be 
ictlve in all matters pertaining to the relationship between the North CaroUna Annual 
Conference and its corporations. (See Discipline, 1964, par. 22).

I REPORT OF THE NORTH CAROLINA COUNCIL OF CHURCHES 

The 1968 Assembly of the North Carolina Council of Chiu-ches, held on April 23 
xd 24 at the Dilworth Methodist Church, Charlotte (viith Church Women United 
jinning their meeting on April 21, the Pastors' Conference falling on April 23, and 
)venant Presbyterian and St. Mark's Lutheran Churches assisting as hosts) had twin 
i — Christian Social Action because of the present crisis in the nation and Christian 
2ial Ministry because rural poverty is hnked with urban crisis. Prophets, apostles, and 
the Christ call us in 1968 to consciousness, conscience, and commitment. The Mag- 
icat of Mary expressed a deep Identity vdth the poor, and Mary's Son, by accepting 
►aptism by John, confirmed God's common cause vdth the impoverished. Contrary to 
/larxism, we say that material things are not enough to satisfy human hunger. People of 
he new birth — rich and poor — confess that their privileges carry obhgations to learn 
nd work together without patronage, condescension, or suspicion of brother. 

At the conclusion of the East Asia Christian Conference in February 1968 D. T. 
Jlles is reported to have quoted Henry David Thoreau: "If you build castles in the air 
hat is where they should be. Now put foundations under them." In 1964 the North 
Carolina Council of Churches undertook expansion to meet the needs of our communities 
1 our time, updating cooperative Christian efforts vidth all people of good will. In four 
ears new foimdatlons have been put under some of the structure. There is much more 
3 be done. 

I. 
The work of the North Carolina Council of Churches is done through the Depart- 
nt of Church Women United, the Department of Christian Youth, the General Com- 






216 North Carolina Annual Conference 

mittee on Business and Finance, the General Committee on Public Relations ( and its ' 
Committee on Radio and Television), and five commissions — Christian Education, 
Christian Social Action, Christian Social Ministry, Council Organization and Extension, 
and Inter-church Cooperation. Under these commissions there are twenty-three program 
committees made up of representatives from member communions. The Executive Board, 
also made up of representatives elected from the constituent bodies, and the Assembly, 
with its official representatives, are the only two groups empowered to speak officially 
for the North Carolina Council of Churches. Commissions and committees may speak 
and act in their own names, subject to review by the Executive Board and/or the As- 
sembly. 

II. 

One of the most encouraging developments of the past twelve months was the adop- ^ 
tion by the Luther League Unit of North Carohna of the Migrant Ministry of the North i 
Carolina Council of Churches as the project for financial support of the Lutheran "Penny ■ 
Parade" last November. As a result of this effort by young people age 12-24, the Luther i 
League president, Michael Frye of Lenoir-Rhyne College, and its treasurer, Glenn Miller i 
of Boyden High School, Salisbury, presented to the Executive Director of the Council! 
of Churches on March 5 a check for $2,230.14 to be used to employ chaplains who will 
minister with migrant and other seasonally employed agricultural workers during this 
year. These young leaders indicate that there is more to come for support of this work. 
The Council is deeply grateful for this significant support from a significant source. 

III. 

The present membership of the North Carohna Council of Churches consists of 
thirty-nine member bodies, drawn from sixteen denominations, having in the judicatories 
6,723 congregations and 1,350,000 communicant members. The Council affords a sym- 
bol of unity in Christian purpose, a channel for widely varied ministries, and an agency 
for cooperative service to the members and to the world.

REPORT OF THE DEACONESS BOARD 

We continue to have two active deaconesses in the North Carolina Conference - 
Miss Bemice Ballance, church and community worker on the Salemburg area project. \ 
Salemburg, North Carolina, and Miss Ethelynde Ballance, director of Christian educa- 
tion, Raeford Methodist Church, Raeford, North Carolina. Two retired deaconesses 
reside within our Conference: Miss Efizabeth Davis, Nashmont Rest Home, Rocky 
Mount, and Miss Mary Nichols of Wilmington. 

The two active deaconesses attended the armual meeting of the Southeastern Juris- 
diction Deaconess Association which met in Birmingham, Alabama, in February. There 
they learned of some of the changes concerning deaconess work. One of the biggest 
changes is that there will no longer be a Conference Deaconess Board, but the interpre- 
tation of the deaconesses' relationship and the recruitment of deaconesses will be the 
responsibility of the Conference Commission on Christian Vocations. 

Miss Joan Kieman, one of the recipients of our North Carolina Conference Women's 
Society scholarships, continues her study at Scarritt College in Nashville, Tennessee. 
She plans to become a deaconess. 

As the responsibility for interpretation and recruitment passes to another board, we 
rejoice in the opportunities we have had through the years. Our deaconesses continue 
to be available when called upon to help promote deaconess work in whatever way 
possible. I

Report No. 2 

The trustees of the Duke Endowment, the Durham Committee and the Divinity 
fcihool of Duke University join in expressing sincere appreciation to Bishop Paul N. 
tJarber who, through his Episcopal office, has given excellent leadership to the programs 
>ertaining to the Work of the Rural Church. In particular did Bishop Garber provide 
^dance to the institution and operation of the Committee on Church Architedture. 
rhrough the efforts of this committee the quahty of architecture has been enhanced and 
he number of churches using professional architectural services has greatly increased. 

The trustees of the Duke Endowment are instituting a program whereby the two 
Vnnual Conferences in North Carolina Methodism vdll be more closely related to the 
>rograms under the Rural Church Committee. Bishop Garber has been requested to set 
ip a committee to be knovra as the Bishop's Advisory Committee, which will represent 
he two Annual Conferences and the Duke Divinity School in reviewing programs and 
naking recommendations to the Rural Church Committee of the Duke Endowment. 
I, The Riu-al Church Program is designed to be of assistance to the small and rural 



218 North Carolina Annual Conference 

Mediodist churches of rural North Ciarolina, ever seeking to help the churches help them- 
selves rather than doing for the churches the things which they can do for themselves. 
Long-range planning, creative programming, and effective leadership training are en- 
couraged as the Duke Endowment works cooperatively vdth the Aimual Conference 
agencies.

across geographical, national, racial, religious, and social lines. 

We recommend that the Conference continue a Commission on Ecumenical Affairs 
and that funds be appropriated to enable the Commission to develop a broad and effec- 
tive program.

COMMITTEE ON GENERAL CHURCH SCHOOL MINISTRY 

Wallace H. Kirby, Chairman 
I. Report for 1967-1968 

A. With the introduction of the new adult curriculum in the fall of 1967 many 
Adult Sunday School Classes have taken on new vitality. Some churches have set up 
adult study groups at times other than Simday morning. The use of Methodist 
curriculum materials in the children's, youth, and adult divisions has increased until 
we now have only six churches in the Conference not using some Methodist materials. 
A recent survey revealed that the North Carolina Conference leads all Annual Con- I 
ferences in the Richmond, Virginia, Cokesbury area in the percentage of churches 

I 



Journal of Proceedings 219 

using Methodist materials. We look forward now to the introduction of the new 
youth curriculum in September, 1968. 

B. Eighteen Christian Workers' Schools were held last year in the following 
areas: Alamance County, Durham, Bahama, Hertford, Fayetteville, Belhaven, Green- 
ville, Snow Hill, Washington, East Carteret, New Bern, Millbrook, Raleigh, ' Wilson, 
North Moore, Sanford, Hamlet and Troy. These schools enrolled 1122 persons and 
808 received course cards of recognition. Fifty-three adults in training were involved 
in four Laboratory Classes and fifty-one of these received course cards. There were 
two One-Teacher Schools involving 38 persons. The School of Christian Missions at 
Methodist College, Fayetteville involved 529 persons. 

C. A Consultation Training Laboratory was held at Camp Chestnut Ridge, Septem- 
,ber 4-6, 1967, with Dr. George E. Koehler of Nashville, Tennessee as the leader. 
Twenty-four persons attended this three-day workshop which was designed to train 
iresource leaders to assist local churches in planning their educational ministries. 

D. Numerous Consultations were held in local churches by Conference Board of 
'Education staff members. District Directors and certified instructors, in such areas 
IS Planning Educational Facihties, Using Resources in the Church's Educational 
Ministry, Planning the Church's Educational Ministry, Improving Teaching-Learning, 
Met Settings For Educational Ministry, etc. 

E. Many persons from our Conference participated in summer leadership enter- 
jrises at Lake Junaluska. Fifty-two adults attended the Regional Leadership and 
laboratory School, July 30-August 11, 1967. A team of four persons participated in 
'be Special Workshop on "The Educational Task of the Church During the Next 
Decade", held in connection with the Leadership School. One person was enrolled in 
!he Seminar For Prospective Laboratory Leaders in the Children's Division and two 
vere enrolled in the Seminar For Prospective Laboratory Leaders in adult work. 
Jut Conference was also represented in the Workshop For Leaders of Through-The- 
A^eek Nursery Schools and Kindergartens, July 30-August 11, and the Church School 
administrator's Conference, August 11-14. 

n. Recommendations for 1968-1969 

A. Leadership Training 

1. Christian Workers' Schools 

a. We recommend the discontinuation of all course cards of recognition in 
christian Workers' Schools because we feel this is insufficient motivation. 

b. We recommend that pre-registration be conducted in each local church 
t least thirty days prior to the school. In the interest of good stewardship of both talent 
nd money, at least twelve persons should be enrolled in each class. 

c. We recommend the following schedule of honoraria for instructors: 

$40 for a 3-night, first series school, 

$50 for a 4-night, first series school, 

$60 for a 5-night, second series school, 

$75 for a laboratory school. 
Wherever possible, the school should provide the dean with honorarium equal to that 
f an instructor. The participating cliurches will provide one-half of the instructor's 
onoraria and the expense of all instructors — lodging, meals, and travel (8c per mile). 

d. We recommend that the Board of Managers of each school'innovate new 
leas and develop new schedules to fit the situational needs. 

2. We recommend that the Board of Education staff organize a week-long train- 
ig session for Church School leaders and pastors to be held in early September. The 
urpose of such a session would be to help such leaders use more effectively the 
-u-riculum resources and the pastors in conducting church membership confirmation 
asses. 

3. We call attention to the fact that resource persons are available to assist 
>cal churches in their educational needs such as leadership training, plaiming the 
iucational ministry, planning educational facilities, and so forth. 

4. We recommend that the Board of Education join with the Board of Lay 
cti\ities in providing studies for laymen in theology and other areas, and that 
le Executive Secretary initiate such conversations. 

5. We recommend that the staff of the Board of Education determine how 
chnical schools might assist in the work of leadership development. 

m 6. We recommend that a conference-wide training session of Church School 



220 North Carolina Annual Conference 

administrators be held at one of the colleges between summer school sessions. Such 
a conference, designed specifically for Church School Superintendents and Commission 
on Education Chairmen, would be limited to 50-60 persons and would begin on Friday 
evening and continue through Sunday afternoon. The specific emphasis will be on the 
local church developing its own educational ministry. 

7. We recommend that the Interboard Coordinating Council conduct workshop 
sessions on the organizational structure of the United Methodist Church. 

B. Continuing Education in the Local Church 

1. We recommend that the Commission on Education initiate quarterly work- 
ers' conference sessions involving two or more neighboring churches for the purpose 
of reviewing the literature for the next quarter and sharing teaching procedxires. The 
Board of Education will recommend, if requested, resoiuroe persons to assist in such 
sessions. 

2. All pastors v^oll be given an opportunity to request bulletin covers for the 
observance of Christian Education Sunday on September 29, 1968. Every local church 
is encouraged to observe this special day so that Christian Education is seen to be 
important. We recommend that the Committee on Youth Ministry design the cover 
of said bulletin. 

C. Continuing Education of Ministers 

1. Supportive Ministry: 

a. Propositions: (1) The church has failed to capture the imagination of its 
people wdth a vital, creative, on-going educational ministry in the local church. (2) The 
educational ministry succeeds or fails in the local church. The pastor is the principal 
educator in the local church, and bears the major responsibiUty for equipping the laity 
(teachers/leaders/learners). To do this he needs to be involved continuously in a 
training program designing to help him in the command of content and communication 
skills, and to help him assume an enabling role in the total teaching ministry. (3) The 
Board of Education should help local pastors fulfill their role as educator by establishing 
a supportive ministry which provides continuous training in content and commimicative 
skills in all areas of the Christian faith. 

b. Structiu-e: 

(1) Content: courses in the commimication of theology, Bible, ethics, 
Christianity and culture, personality development, and current resources. 

(2) Setting: regional institutes or seminars (for example, Raleigh-D'urham, j^ 
Greenville, Red Springs); eight half-Mondays per quarter. i^ 

(3) Personnel: Divinity School or college faculty, or others so skilled. 

c. We recommend that the Executive Secretary select a sub-committee to 
investigate the possibility of holding two pilot projects in the area of the supportive 
ministry and such plans to be presented to the Board of Education. 

d. We recommend that the Board of Education set aside up to $800 in 
support of the project, such funds to be taken from the leadership training fund. 

2. We support the resolution of the Conference Commission on In-Service 
Training in recommending that the Commission be discontinued and that a "Com- 
mission on Continuing Education of The Ministry" be established for the purpose of 
developing a more adequate and coordinated program of continuing education for the 
ministers of the North Carolina Aimual Conference. (See report of Commission on 
In-Service Training). 

3. We call attention to a Junior High Church Membership Confirmation Lab 
and Seminar for Pastors to be held at Hayes Barton Methodist Church, Raleigh, N. C, 
as a joint project of the North Carolina and Virginia Annual Conferences. This Lab 
will be limited to ten pastors from each Conference. We anticipate that in the future 
additional such labs will be held to better prepare pastors for conducting Church 
Membership Confirmation Classes. 

D. Special Days 

We lu-ge each local church to observe the following special days in appropriate 
and effective ways and that they take the special offerings called for after explaining 
the purpose and importance of each. 

1. Promotion Day in the Church School, August 25, 1968 (no special offering). 

2. Christian Education Sunday, September 29, 1968 (included in the "Single 
Figure Asking" but may be taken to apply on this asking). 

3. Student Recognition Sunday, December 29, 1968 (no special offering). 



Journal of Proceedings 221 

4. Race Relations Sunday, February 9, 1969 — Special Offering for Paine Col- 
lege in Augusta, Georgia (not included in "Single Figure Asking"). 

5. Methodist Student Day, June 8, 1969, Special Offering for Methodist Student 
Loan and Scholarship Fund (not included in "Single Figure Asking"). 

6. World Service Sunday in the Church School each fourth Sunday. 

Section B 
COMMITTEE ON MINISTRY WIFH CHILDREN 

Mrs. James Auman, Chairman 
Progress Report for 1967-1968 

Since the meeting of the Annual Conference last June, your Committee on Ministry 
with Children has been without a Director. J. Conrad Glass, Jr. has capably assisted 
with meetings and activities in this area, in addition to his regular duties as Director 
of Youth Ministry. For this assistance we are grateful — but we still look forward to the 
'time when a full-time Director of Children's Ministry can be employed. 

Highlights of our year have included: seven Children's Courses offered in seven 
Christian Workers Schools. One hundred forty-three workers were enrolled wiih 101 
receiving credit. One Laboratory Enterprise, with eight persons enrolled, with six 
receiving credit. Seven hundred forty-three boys and girls engaged in the summer 
camping program. 

The Committee on Ministry to the Blind has been investigating possibilities of 
securing our church school curriculum materials on tapes. The Reverend J. Earl 
Richardson, Chairman, has been able to have the first book of the adult curriculum 
taped and this may be secured by writing him. He has continued to work closely 
with our Governor Morehead School in providing suitable church school materials for 
use with students there. 

Fifty boys and girls attended the Camp for Mentally Retarded at Camp Don-Lee. 
The camp, this past summer, was directed by Mr. Harley Cecil, with assistance from 
staff members at Butner. 

Children's workers again assisted district teams in missionary education institutes 
in the fall as they presented the children's materials on this years themes of "Japan'', 
and "Christ and the Faiths of Men". Increased attendance on the part of children's 
workers was noted. 

In November our Committee, and the entire Board of Education, honored the 
Reverend Wesley Brogan at a dinner, in appreciation of his nine years of service with 
the Board of Education as Director of Children's Work. A copy of the resolution of 
appreciation for his work was printed in the North Carolina Christian Advocate. 

Vacation Church School Institutes this spring are being led by EHstrict teams, 
involving some 45 or 50 volunteer leaders. Evaluation of this enterprise will, of 
aecessity, come at a later date. Institutes are scheduled in each of the eleven districts 
ind our fine staff of district directors have been responsible for this work. 

Time permitting, we would like to have a brief look at this quadrennium of 
1964-1968, for it has been a very special one for those of us in the children's field. 
This has been the quadrennium in which our new curriculum has been introduced and 
because of these new materials a great deal of enthusiasm has been generated, and 
tnany good solid foundations laid. Because of the need to introduce our new curricu- 
.um more small group meetings were held and therefore a closer unity has been 
leveloped within the leadership of these age group workers. During this quadrennium 
jve have organized our committees dealing with ministry to exceptional children; the 
:amp for Mentally Retarded was initiated. A compilation of week-day kindergarten 
:eacners has been made and a special all-day conference held with them. A conference- 
A'ide laboratory was very successfully carried out at Rocky Mount, and scores of new 
eachers have been recruited for service beyond the local church. 

Recommendations for 1968-1969 

1. Vacation Church School Institutes to be held in each district in the spring of 
1969, between the period of April 8-25. District directors will be asked to make plans 
-or these institutes, the hours will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. No materials will be offered 
"or sale at the institutes since our publishing house now handles materials well in 
idvance of the institutes. 

2. Explore the possibihties of adding an additional enrichment group at Vacation 
Dhurch School Institutes for other interested persons; such as: creative arts, outdoor 
i^terprises, theological discussion, etc. 



222 North Carolina Annual Conference m 

3. Continue committees organized for ministry to persons with special needs, and 
we recommend the continuation of the Camp for Mentally Retarded at Camp Don-Lee. 

4. Participation in missionary education institutes, cooperatmg with the Board of 
Missions in presenting this year's materials on "Southeast Asia" and "New Forms of 
Mission". 

5. Consult with Conference Music Committee about possibilities of a workshop on 
Music and the Christian Education of Children. 

6. Encourage participation of leaders in the refresher courses being offered for 
leaders of Christian Workers Schools and Laboratory Enterprises. 

7. Consider the possibilities of consultation with the Board of Hospitals and Homes 
on our mutual concerns of needs of children in local communities. We are thinking 
especially of some means of expanding our ministry to gmdance with behavior problems 
of children. 

8. District directors take leadership in planning one-night sessions to help local 
church workers to plan use of curriculum for the following quarter. Also, conduct 
curriculum sessions for teachers who have begun teaching since 1964. The purpose of 
these sessions is to acquaint these teachers with the theology, educational, philosophy, 
resources, and format of the Children's Curriculum materials, 

9. Consider the possibiUty of holding a Conference Lab School in 1969. 

10. As soon as is possible, the securing of a full-time director of Ministry with 
Children. 

Section C 
COMMITTEE ON MINISTRY WITH YOUTH 

W. A. Graham, Chairman 
Progress Report for 1967-1968 

Enrollment in the Youth Division decreased by 796 to 26,559 in 1966-1967. 

As has been the policy for several years, a varied program was offered for the 
youtli of the Conference this past year. The following ministries were held (the rec- 
ord of attendance is Usted beside each event ) : Appalachian Trail Hike in the Great 
Smoky Mountain National Park (16), Senior Camp at Camp Don-Lee (47), Workshop 
at N. C. Wesleyan College (214), Subdistrict Workshop at Methodist College (51), 
Annual Conference Session at Methodist College (401), United Nations-Washington 
Study Tour (38), and EXPLORE (50). A total of 817 persons participated. 

A further word might be said about the EXPLORE Weekend, March 29-31, 1968. 
This experience was planned in cooperation with the Conference Commission on 
Christian Vocations. The central idea of this weekend was to have young people to 
live in the homes of adults who were employed in the occupation in which the young 
person had expressed some interest. Over 60 young people applied, and even though 
approximately 90-100 adults were contacted, we were able to place only about half 
of the youth. The overwhelming response to this experience seems to indicate that 
this is an experience which young people are wanting. 

This year's Senior Summer Program vdll again offer a choice of ministries. The 
program will consist of Trail Hike, "Where the Action Is!", Subdistrict Workshop, 
Senior Camps at Don-Lee and Chestnut Ridge, Workshop, and Armual Conference 
Session. 

In Junior High camping 549 youth attended the Conference camps this past year. 
In the area of leadership education, we can report 12 courses were offered in 
Christian Worker's Schools, with 165 enrolled and 92 receiving credit. In addition, a 
special youth lab and seminar were held at Hayes Barton Methodist Church m Raleigh 
on "You and Your Life Work". Ten laboratory leaders from all over the Southeastern 
Jurisdiction attended this training experience, with two of the leaders from our Con- 
ference. The Reverend Dick Gibson, Minister of Christian Education at Hayes Barton 
Methodist Church, was responsible for getting this experience located in our Conference. 
Eleven "Workshops on New Trends, Directions, and Curriculum in \outh Mmistry 
were held in each district to acquaint the ministers with the "New Day m Youth 
Ministry". r , , , i . v • 

The Youth Committee acknowledges eight years of alert leadership as our chairman 
by W. Albert Graham. We appreciate his vigorous spirit, his sensitive insight, and his 
honesty in search. He has given a quality of genuine ministry to his position. 

Because J. Conrad Glass, Jr. continues to provide renewing freshness and helptul 
openness in his role as Conference Director of Youth Ministry, the Youth Committefe 
fully recommends that he be re-appointed to this ministry.

Section D 

COMMITTEE ON ADULT MINISTRY 

Kelly J. Wilson, Chairman 

Progress Report for 1967-1968 

Enrollment in the Adult Divisions of our church schools decreased by 234 from 
uly 1, 1966 to June 30, 1967. This is the smallest decrease in several years. 

Thirty-two Preview-Demonstration Workshops were conducted across the North 
Carolina Conference during June and July to prepare local church adult leaders for 
fiFective presentation of the new adult curriculum (2023 adults were trained in these 
/orkshops). Study of Unit I of Foundation Studies in Christian Faith, "Man's Search 
)r a Meaningful Faith" was begun in local churches the first Simday in September, 
967. 

The following Adult Leadership Education enterprises were also held: 3 Adult 
abs with a total of 45 persons enrolled and 44 credits granted; Adult Learning in 
Changine World taught in 5 Christian Workers Schools (2 schools enrolled 56 adults 

1 fid the other 3 have not reported yet); Adult Work in the Church taught once wdth 



224 North Carolina Annual Conference 

an enrollment of 23 persons; and Young Adult Work in the Church taught once (no 
report). 

Evaluations and Reflections 

Reports from local churches, pastors, and adult education leaders indicate that 
the new adult curriculum has been well received. Curriculum Information Statistics 
compiled by Cokesbury in Richmond show that all of the adult classes in 187 of our 
Nor3i Carolina Conference churches are using the new adult curriculum. 264 1 
churches are ordering both Foundation Studies in Christian Faith imits and Wesley 
Quarterly. 359 churches are using Wesley Quarterly only. Thus over half of our 
churches are using the new adult curriculum. 

A number of churches have organized new adult study groups using the new adult 
curriculum at a time other than the regular Sunday School hoxur. This affords an i 
opportunity to reach additional adults not involved in the Sunday morning classes. 
It also enables regular teachers of all age groups to participate in an adult study group. 
More churches should follow this pattern. 

Recommendations for 1968-1969 

Reports from across the entire conference, as to the acceptance of the new adult 
curriculum, revealed one significant factor. Wherever the local pastor effectively ful- 
filled his role as Christian educator, worked closely with his adult leaders in learning 
as much as possible about the new adult curriculum and how to effectively use it, 
and continued to provide an enabling back-up ministry for his adult leaders, the new 
adult curriculum has been received with great enthusiasm. Therefore, it is our con- 
tention that the major efforts of the Conference Board of Education, in cooperation 
with the other boards and agencies, should be directed toward providing a supportive 
ministry to the local pastor as educator. 

Pastors are willing to schedule the necessary time for well planned and led training 
sessions that will help increase their knowledge and skills in communicating the Chris- 
tian faith and way of life. To this end, the Committee on Adult Ministry makes the 
following proposals: 

1. Supportive Ministry to Pastor: The Adult Committee developed a basic pro- 
posal for continuing education, outlining purpose, areas of study (stressing skills of 
communication), structure and setting. Since this proposal related to the total educa- 
tional ministry, the Committee referred the proposal to the Committee on General 
Church School Ministry for action. This Committee favorably received and adopted 
the proposal (See Part C of Section II of the Committee on Ceneral Church School 
Ministry Report). The Committee on Adult Ministry pledges its full support to the 
effective implementation of this proposal. 

2. Cooperative Ministry to Yoimg Adidts: For several years our committee has 
urged that new patterns of ministry be developed and carried out to reach young 
adults, urban and rural, that are not now being ministered to by present efforts. Lack 
of leadership and finances have hampered any effective efforts. We now propose the 
setting up of an Interboard-Ecumenical Research and Experimentation Committee to 
begin serious development of this type of young adult ministry. Competent and con- 
cerned personnel and finances should be made available from all boards and agencies. 
Efforts should be made to locate and join forces with other denominations and agencies 
that are working in this area. An ecumenical ministry is necessary if this new "sub- 
culture" of the young adult world is to be touched by a meaningful Christian witness. 
Young adults from the area of concern must be actively involved in the research and 
planning of such a ministry. 

3. Use of Mass Media As Leadership Training Aid to Local Churches: We recom- 
mend that TRAFCO and the General Board of Education pool talents in developing 
a series of one minute "spots" that will lift up choice bits of content out of current 
units as the new adult curriculum as they speak to specific persistent life concerns. 
These spots should be composed with an eye to use on television, radio and also in 
printed media. These could be used just prior to news casts and other prime listening 
times. In print, tlie brief statements could be high-lighted by use of the "Flame 
Emblem" found on all the new adult curriculum materials. Foundation Studies in 
Christian Faith. 

4. New Adult Curriculum Follow-up Workshops: As new units appear and new 
leaders are recruited by local churches, a real need is felt for additional workshops 
similar to the original Preview-Demonstration Workshops. Occasionally classes have 
given up on the new curriculum because they felt they did not know enough about 
how to use the materials effectively. We recommend that District Directors of Adult 



Journal of Proceedings 225 

Ministry, along with the District Superintendent, pastor and boards of managers of 
Christian Workers School, work together in planning and carrying out such workshops 
wherever needed most in each district. Some of these could be a part of the Christian 
Workers School. 

5. We recommend that boards of managers of Christian Workers Schools make 
a concerted effort to include the basic leadership education courses such as Under- 
standing Adults, Adult Learning in a Changing World and Teaching Groups in the 
Church. Adults Labs should be planned in all schools where at least two of 5ie above 
basic courses have been taught recently. 

6. Local churches should be reminded that trained resource persons are available 
to come and assist them in working through their own specific local concerns and 
needs of adult education. Such assistance can be obtained through the District Direc- 
tor of General Church Ministry or by writing the Board of Education in Ealeigh. 

The Committee on Adult Ministry recommends that a letter of commendation be 
sent to Dr. James C. Stokes, Editor of the North Carolina Christian Advocate, for his 
effective and informative publicizing of units of the new adult curriculum as they are 
nade available for use by local churches. 

We commend the fine work of our Conference Director of Adult Ministry and take 
-Jiis opportunity to express our concern about the vacancy left by his leave of absence. 
We appreciate his personal sacrifices which have made the varied work of camping, 
\dult Ministry and other achievements possible. 

Section E 
COMMITTEE ON CHRISTIAN FAMILY LIFE 

R. T. Commander, Chairman 

"The modem family is struggling against great difiBculties: the tensions created by 
he world situation, uncertainties due to the present military demands on youth, in- 
idequate housing, uprooting of families due to unprecedented population shifts, and 
Jie coarsening influence of many mass media on the lives of children. The end result 
)f these difficulties is evidenced by the high rate of divorce, juvenile delinquency, 
broken lives, and a general laxity of moral standards. It is only when the family 
ulfiUs its highest functions and is truly Christian that its members rise above these 
lifBculties and thus aid in halting the trends threatening the home." These concerns 
lave stimulated our thinking which initiated the following recommendations. (Discipline, 
^ar. 1821) 

Progress Report for 1967-1968 

Family Life Conferences were held in the Fayetteville, Goldsboro, Greenville and 
laleigh Districts. Marriage Enrichment Programs were sponsored in the Burlington 
nd New Bern Districts. Family Life Workshops on a local church basis were held in 
lamlet, Aberdeen, Laurinburg, Raleigh, and Rockingham — and on a subdistrict basis 
a Burlington and Gatesville. Our Family Camp at Don-Lee and Tent-Trailer Family 
]amp at Kerr Lake were popular and well-filled. 

Recommendations for 1968-1969 

1. That local churches give serious consideration to a constructive study of the 
tandards of morahty of a Christian family and of the sacredness of sex in the 
christian life, as stated in our Methodist Social Creed, Article 1820, Section III, sub- 
ection A, C6. 

2. That District Seminars on Family Life be held for pastors to study these family 
fe recommendations of the Discipline. 

3. That a packet of materials be sent to the chairmen of local Family Life Com- 
littees with specific suggestions: for the above study, with discussion questions; 
Dr the first family life committee meeting with an agenda. The packet will also con- 
lin a brochure on the Marriage Enrichment Program, which our committee heartily 
ndorses, and the basic pamphlet, "Committee on Christian Family Life." 

4. That we encourage the widest possible use of the Marriage Enrichment Program, 
ubhshed by the Upper Penninsular Family Life Bureau, Escanaba, Mich., 49829. 

We express appreciation to our Conference Director, Rev. John H. Sutton, Jr., for 
is thoughtful and kindly guidance of our Committee on Family Life and wish him 
iod's blessings during his sabbatical leave.

Section G 
COMMITTEE ON CAMPS AND CONFERENCES ifl 

W. Warren Bishop, Chairman J, 

Report for 1967-1968 (ili, 

Camping, as a part of the total program of Christian Education, continues to plajS 
a vital part in the North Carolina Annual Conference. During 1967, approximatehj 
1,600 yoimg people were involved in camping programs sponsored by the Board o&i 
Education. 5,400 other persons were involved in local church retreats and plaiminjj 
sessions, day camping, picnic groups, student groups and others. Of special note ilk 
the growing use of Camp Rockfish for activities of the latter tjrpe. Also of special 
importance is the fact that many of oin- camp weeks are filled to capacity, witl,! 
vacancies occurring most among Junior High boys. 

Features of last year's program, and included in the schedule for 1968, wen 
Elementary IV-VI Camps, Junior High and Senior High Camps, Simfish Sailing Cam] 
Family Camps, and the Mentally Retarded Camp. The Kiwanis Club of Fayettevil 
sponsored two weeks of camping for underprivileged boys at Camp Rockfish. Cam] 
Kerr Lake continues to be available for family tent-trailer use, day camps and oth^ 
programs of local churches. ""^ 

Directing the camp program for 1968 will be: Dr. Gerald Shinn, Wilmingtoif'i 
College Faculty Member, Camp Don-Lee; Mr. John Cottingham, Duke DivinitJ 
School Student, Camp Rockfish; and Mr. Jimmy Creech, Duke Divinity School Studei 
Camp Chestnut Ridge. During the summer of 1968, we will also begin using a fe' 
select persons in a Jimior Counselor or Coimselor-in-training program. It is hopi 
that this will enable us to better train counselors for our camping program. 

Other important achievements in 1967 include the work of a Committee oi 
Maintenance which is still at work compiling a master schedide for the maintenano'j 
of our camp facilities. When completed, this committee will have thoroughly analyzes 
and set up procedures for the up-keep and development of all facihties. jk 

The Campaign for $300,000.00 in capital fimds to meet emergency needs ani] 
development needs of our Conference Camp facilities has met vdth some successji 
As of April 1st, approximately $100,000 has been pledged and approximately $30,000.0<i| ■ 
has been paid. This represents slightly more than one third of our charges participatinj|o ti 
For the crusade, color brochures were prepared on each camp and a twenty ininut|[)ej,' 



Journal of Proceedings 229 

color film on camping was produced. The film has been widely acclaimed and used. 
Also, District promotional dinners were held and District and local church committees 
organized. We are deeply grateful for each church which has participated to this point 
in the financial crusade, and thank them for taking leadership in this great need or our 
Conference camps. 

The master plan of Camp Kerr Lake has been reworked and has been submitted 
to the Kerr Lake Reservoir Development Conumssion for their approval. 

Camp Crusade Resolution 

We Recommend That an intensive effort be made during the Conference Year 
1968-1969 to complete the Crusade for $300,000 in cash and three year pledges for 
emergency needs of our four conference camps adopted by the 1967 Annual Con- 
ference. 

We Further Recommend That the District Superintendent, in consultation with 
the District Lay Leader and the District Crusade Chairman, suggest goal ranges for 
each pastoral charge, based upon the district goal range, unless already provided for. 
It is recommended that this meeting be held in the afternoon prior to the Set-Up 
Meeting of the District Board of Lay Activities. 

That during late July and August eight to ten persons, selected by the District 
Superintendent in each district, in consultation with the District Lay Leader, District 
Camp Crusade Chairman and District Director of Camping, be trained to meet with 
local church leaders in each church to help in the promotion of the Crusade as 
irurther outlined. 

That during late August and early September, these persons thus trained meet 
mth the pastor, church lay leader, the chairman of the oflBcial board, the crusade 
phairman and the Conunission on Education Chairman in each church to enlist dieir 
lid in helping the church set its awn goal range for the campaign. 

That is September, or earlier if possible, the OflBcial Board of each church be 
onfronted with this program and be given the opportimity to accept its own goal range 
igure and to develop plans for achieving that goal. 

That October 1968 be observed as Camp Crusade Month in each local church. 

That Sunday, October 6, Crusade Committee member visit each adult class and 
eek to solicit a pledge from them. 

That Simday, October 13, Layman's Day, present Camp Crusade during the worship 
lOur in the local church. On that Sunday afternoon, solicitation of pledges from in- 
lividuals begin, continuing on through the week. 

That other pledges be solicited from Methodist Men, W.S.C.S., MYF, etc. 

That a report of pledges and payments be made by each pastor to his EHstrict 
jjuperintendent on Monday, November 4, 1968. 

(For a listing of these emergency needs, refer to the 1967 Journal of the North 
rolina Conference, pages 232-233).

Appreciation 

The results of our program in camping in the North Carolina Conference are due 

the efforts of many people, and to each staff member at our camps, each young 

irson who attends, each local church that has helped in any way, we express our 



230 North Carolina Annual Conference 

deep gratitude. We could not achieve any measure of success without tl , cooperative 
efforts of all Methodists in our Conference. 

Especially, do we commend the following for their special efforts in behalf of 
camping: 

— Mr. Gene Clayton, program director at Camp Rockfish, who also serves during 
the remainder of the year as superintendent and caretaker at Camp Rockfish. Mr. 
Clayton will be serving in an advisory capacity this summer only, as he will be studying 
toward his doctorate degree. 

— ^Dr. Gerald Shinn, who has served as director at Camp Don-Lee, and who will 
be returning this summer. 

— Dr. C. P. Morris, our Executive Secretary, who spends many hours and expends 
much effort in guiding our camping program as Business Manager. 

— Rev. John Sutton, our Conference Director of Adult Work and Camping, who 
not only has been the resident program director of Camp Chestnut Ridge, but also 
recruits staff and is responsible for the total camp programming for the Conference. 
We are deeply grateful for all his efforts and look for his return to our camping 
ministry at the completion of a year on Sabbatical. 

— Mr. Robert Reed, Superintendent of Camps, who carries responsibility for the 
maintenance of our four Conference Camps and for supervising construction programs. 
We are also grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Reed for their faithful work in taking care of 
retreat groups using winterized facilities at Camp Chestnut Ridge throughout the year.

1. Rev. James A. Auman, Executive Director is commended for his energetic 
md effective leadership in this effort during the past four years. We recommend that 
'iiis oiBce be continued with salary and office expenses being provided by the Association 
pf Methodist Colleges in the North Carolina Annual Conference and with office space 
Hnd equipment being provided by the North Carolina Annual Conference. We also 

ecommend that, in keeping with the Discipline of the Methodist Church, this office 
;ontinue to be related to the Annual Conference Board of Education and the Com- 
nission on Christian Higher Education, with the understanding that work in connection 
vith the Capital Funds Crusade is under the Conference Board of Education. We re- 
quest that Bishop Garber reappoint Rev. James A. Auman to this position. 

2. We recommend that the Conference Board of Education appoint a com- 
nittee to study the relationship of the Association of Methodist Colleges in the North 
^arolina Conference and the Board of Education of the North Carolina Annual 
conference and that its findings be reported to the 1969 Annual Conference. 

B. Recommendations Concerning Completion of Capital Fimds Crusade. 

1. That the Conference continue to seek payments to the fullest extent possible 
rom those churches that have not yet met their quotas. That the Official Board of each 
f these churches be consulted by the District Superintendent concerning the extent 
f its obligation and its plan for meeting the obligation. 

2. That the Conference support Bishop Garber's plan for cultivating friends of 
16 Colleges by personal letters to and follow-up contacts vdth a group composed of 
t least 25 individuals nominated by each District Superintendent from among persons 
1 their respective districts who are able to contribute substantially to the completion of 
le quota assigned to their districts. 

3. That the annual College Day be continued and that it be utilized for en- 
)uraging both church-wide and individual plans for the continuous support of capital 
md needs of the colleges through various types of voluntary programs including in- 
ividual contributions and pledges and the inclusion of college capital fvmd support 
1 the annual budget of local churches. 

4. That the North Carolina Annual Conference direct the new Commission on 
hristian Higher Education and Campus Ministry to develop plans for raising the 
mainder due on oiu- $5,000,000 Capital Funds goal. 

5. That the Board of Education place before the 1968 Annual Conference 
ssion fidl information concerning (a) the status of the Capital Funds Crusade, (b) 
e effects of the Capital Fund debts on the future development of the colleges, (c) the 



236 North Carolina Annual Conference 

nature of the obligation assumed by the Conference when it founded the new colleges 
and launched the Crusade, and (d) the need for assuring communities that have assisted 
in founding and sustaining the colleges and agencies that have advanced capital funds 
loans that the Conference will raise the remainder of its $5,000,000 goal. 

VI. CoUege Sustaining Fund 1968-1969 

A. In keeping with the recommendation of the Commission on Interjurisdictional Re- 
lations of tihe North Carohna, Western North CaroHna, Virginia and North Carolina- 
Virginia Annual Conferences of the Methodist Chtuoh, we recommend that the Nortl: 
Carolina Conference assiune its pro-rata share of the support which Bennett CoUege 
Greensboro, N. C, has been receiving from the former North OaroHna- Virginia Annua 
Conference, Central Jurisdiction, based on the following formula: Western North Caro- 
lina Annual Conference, $7,500.00; Virginia Conference, $2,000.00; North CaroUna An- 
nual Conference, $2,000.00 Total $11,500.00. 

We further recommend that the same ratio be used in the distribution of the remain- 
der of this fund for 1968-1969 as was used for the previous year, in accordance with tht: 
sdiedtJe listed below: 

Bennett CoUege $ 2,000.00 

Duke University (Divinity School) 4.2 percent 21,966.00 

Greensboro CoUege 3.2 percent 16,736.00 

High Point College 3.2 percent 16,736.00 

Louisbiu-g College 24.0 percent 125,520.00 

Methodist College 32.7 percent 171,021.00 

North Carohna Wesleyan CoUege 32.7 percent 171,021.00 

Total $525,000.00 

We request the Commission on World Service and Finance to arrange for these in 
stitutions to receive their CoUege Sustaining Fund support in equal quarterly payments 

B. Support of Ministerial Education 
The 2 percent Plan adopted by the General Conference for Theological Educatio! 

wiU be in eflFeot 1970. Until then, we strongly m-ge support of the 1% Plan now in effect 

Vn. Resolution Constituting A Conference Commission 
On Christian Higher Education and Campus Ministry 

In keeping with paragraph 1181, Section 2, The United Methodist Church, Tb 
Plan of Union, we recommend that the North Carolina Annual Conference constituh 
a Commission on Christian Higher Education and Campus Ministry. 

Vni. Resolution Establishing a Regional Commission on Christian 
Higher Education and Campus Ministry 

The Interconference Consultation Committee on Christian Higher Education of tihi 
North Carolina and Western North Carolina Annual Conferences, after a frank am 
cordial exchange of views, recommends: 

A. "That the respective Boards of Education propose to both the North Carolin 
Annual Conference and the Western North Carolina Annual Conference that they 
join in constituting a Regional Commission on Christian Higher Education and Campu 
Ministry and that each authorize its Committee or Commission on Christian Highe 
Education and Campus Ministry to determine, in consultation with its bishop, il 
membership on the Regional Commission with the understanding that the two com 
mittees or commissions shall adopt a plan that provides for identical representation o 
the Regional Commission." 

B. This recommendation, which was approved by the Committee on Chris 
Higher Education, will implement Paragraph 1181, Section 3, pages 238-239, 
The United Methodist Church, The Plan of Union, that is proposed for adoption 
the Dallas General Conference. The constitution of a Regional Commission will provi 
an agency for continuing interconference cooperation in such matters as the follo' 

1. A Statewide campus ministry 

2. Relationships involving colleges with which they have a joint concern 

3. Other aspects of Christian Higher Education of joint interest to the 
Conferences.

IX. Educational Specials for Campus Ministry 

We deplore the low salaries being paid to our campus ministers. In most instances 
they are receiving less than the minimum salary provided by the two Annual Con- 
ferences for local church pastors, even though they have a number of years of service 
:o their credit. To help alleviate this imbalance we offer the following resolution: 

A. We support the action of the 1967 North Carolina Annual Conference and 
iie Western North Carolina Annual Conference approving Education Specials for the 
iupport of campus ministry in North Carolina, and urge the District Superintendents 
call this to the attention of local churches and request that each local chinch in the 
NJorth Carolina Annual Conference be urged to include a Conference Education Special 
n its budget. 

X. Resolution of Appreciation 

During the past eight years Dr. Arnold K. King has served as an active member 
if the Conference Board of Education. During the past four years he has served as 
Chairman of the Committee on Christian Higher Education. We regret that due to 
conference ndes allowing a maximum of eight consecutive years on a Conference 
$oard, he will not be permitted to serve on the Conference Board of Education next 
ear. He has given the Committee on Christian Higher Education vdse and forceful 
sadership during the past four years. We hereby express to him our sincere appreci- 
tion for his dedicated service to this Committee and to the Conference Board of 
Iducation.

RESOLUTION: TRIBUTE 

Whereas, Bishop Paul Neff Garber has given strong and unprecedented leadership 
( Christian higher education during a i>eriod that spans almost half a century; and 

Whereas, his influence has been felt in our region and throughout the world 

1. As professor of ohurdh history, registrar, and dean of the Duke University Di- 
lity School where he gave enthusiastic leadership in the training of yoimg men and 

jjmen for the ministries of the ohtuioh; 

2. As author of timely books and articles on church history that have inspired 
sands to a more devoted Christian service; 

3. As an engaging and stimulating lecturer and speaker on college and univer- 
campuses and before hundreds of religious gatherings which have been inspired and 
led by the contagion of his spirit; 

4. As a wise and discerning episcopal leader in Europe and Africa where he gave 
ing and heroic leadership during a time that involved the healing of wounds and 

rebuilding of faith and hope following the most destructive war in our history; 



r 



238 North Carolina Annual Conference 

5. As a stalwart dhartipion of Cliiistian higher education in the Cbioncil of Bish 
ops and as president of the Division of Higher Education of the Board of Education o 
The Methodist Church; 

6. As the tireless and indefatiguable bishop and chief pastor of the Ridhmonc 
Area, to which he gave dynamic leadership in strengthening and enlarging the existinj 
Methodist colleges of Virginia and in tilie founding of a new senior coeducational coUeg; 
at Norfolk, Va.; 

7. As the presiding bishop of the Raleigh Area in giving inspiration and greate 
strength to the Duke University Divinity School, Greensiboro and High Point CoUegCi 
and otu- Wesley Foundations; 

8. As the staunch advocate in the enlarging and strengthening of Louisiburg Ool

ence and prestige; 

6. As the tireless and indefatigable bishop and cihief pastor of the Richmon 
North Carolina Wesleyan College at Rocky Mount, two senior coeducational institutioii 
which within the short span of a decade have achieved the highest academic accredita

Therefore, in deep appreciation for his enduring contributions to Christian highe 
eductaion in the North CaroHna Annual Conference and elsewhere, the Board of Edu 
cation of the North CaroHna Annual Conference of The United Methodist Chiu-dh, o: 
this sixth day of Jime, in the year of our Lord 1968, expresses its profoimd gratitude t 
this great churchman and educational statesman. Bishop Paul Neff Garber, for his in 
spiring example, his indomitable courage and his vose and able leadership in bringin 
oui Conference to a preeminent place in Christian higther education. Had it not bee: 
for his faith, heroism, and persevering leadership this miracle in Christian higher educa 
tion would not have happened and tliis Conference could not have achieved an annus 
support of college-operating budgets through the Sustaining Fimd of over five hundrei , 
thousand dollars and three colleges valued at more than twenty million dollars. 

Moreover, the Board expresses its humble thanks to almighty God for sending thi | 
great man to be the episcopal leader of our Conference during these days of chaUeng . 
and opportunity. It also expresses its gratitude to Mrs. Garber for the support she ha 
cheerfully provided him and the cause of Christian higher education dining the year 
he has given himself so completely. 

Furthermore, members of the Board join all of our ministers and laymen in prayin 
for God's continuing blessings upon this esteemed servant of the church and in assurin 
him that all of us, inspired by his example, will carry on the work he has done so we 
with the objective of making the influence of Christian higher education felt even mor 
profoundly. 

Be it Further Resolved, that copies of this resolution be spread upon the minutes c 
the Board of Education, the North Carolina Annual Conference Journal, and that copie 
be provided to the North Carolina Christian Advocate and Bishop Garber.

INTERCONFERENCE COMMISSION ON CAMPUS MINISTRY 

"Through those tough college years, if it hadn't been for the openness of the Campi 
Minister, I probably would have left the Church altogether!'' TTiat was the senttmei 
expressed recently by one of the ministers who now serves efiFectively in oiu: stati | 
Openness and flexibility are possible when one's faith is strong. A ship may ventm 
from shore when there is confidence in its anchor. A firm faith, maturity, educatioi j 
and experience help to make the accepting spirit that is so essential in the effecti\ 
Campus Minister. 

The Campus Ministers who serve best in our state are able to do so because < 
their faith, maturity, education, and experience. Our full-time Campus Ministers a^\ 
erage seven years in their present appointments. They are committed and capable. 
But we are losing men. Three personnel changes are being made this summe 



Journal of Proceedings 239 

The Reverend Jackson W. Carroll, who has been on leave of absence from his post 
as Methodist Campus Minister at Duke, has resigned. He has his Ph.D. degree and will 
be teaching at another imiversity. The Reverend Banks Godfrey, Associate Methodist 
Campus Minister at Chapel Hill, has resigned. In addition, the Reverend Mavirice 
Ritchie, after four very effective years, will be leaving Boone to pursue graduate study. 
We fear that we shall lose additional men unless we are able to support them more 
adequately. 

It is at tremendous financial sacrifice that we are privileged to have capable persons 
serving the campuses of our state. If an adequate housing allowance, including the 
cost of furniture, were given, hardly a one of them would be making the minimmn 
salary paid our pastors in local churches — and everyone knows that pastors are under- 
paid. 

The Interconfemce Commission on Campus Ministry is determined to provide ade- 
quate compensation for our men who serve so valiantly on the campuses. This year 
we are instituting a basic salary plan which will include increases for children and 
3xperience. To do this we need inc-eased giving to the cause of Campus Ministry. An 
educational Special for Campus Ministry is one of the ways that every local church 
:an help to meet the need. We lurge that each chujrch take such a Special. 

We shall do the best we can wdth what you give us — and we shall do the best 
ve can to expand the base of support through alumni cultivation and other means. 

The Campus Ministry has an exciting future. No one knows what students may 
lo next. That is one of the reasons we need mature ministers who are full of faith 
ind capable of counseling our idealistic youth. 

We of the present Interconferenoe Commission on Campus Ministry join others in 
ecommending the establishment of a Regional Commission on Christian Higher Ed- 
ucation and Campus Ministry for this new quadrennium. This will afford a fuller 
xpression of the unity we feel exists between our Conferences and among our Meth- 
dist colleges, Wesley Foundations, and other posts of Campus Ministry, and Duke 
)ivinity School. Already we have viitnessed the disappearing of suspicions and the 
iding of fears which are caused by division. 

■ Ecumenism continues to spread on the campuses, as elsewhere. We are pleased 
,'lways to cooperate with our Christian brothers of other denominations, and we fore- 
3e even closer working relationships in the future. We want ecumenism, and want 
to be responsible ecxrmenism. Tlierefore, we plan to make proper preparation for 
ach venture. 

Recruitment of Church careers continues to be one of our emphases. Numerous 
linisters throughout North Carolina received a boost on their way from the Campus 
(inistry. 

Our state has produced exceptionally fine leaders through the Methodist Student 
[ovement, and we are pleased with their continued devotion to Christ and die Church, 
ast year Charlotte Bunch Weeks, who has served as President of the Methodist 
judent Movement of North Carolina, served as the first President of the University 
hnstian Movement. This year two of the twelve members of the National Council of 
e Methodist Student Movement came from schools in our state. They are: Dennis 
ampbell, the President, who was President of the MSM of N. C. during his senior

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EVANGELISM 

I. 
THE PAST YEAR 

We have dreamed, planned, worked, and prayed for evangelism in our conference, 
jking a spirit-filled life for ourselves and our i>eople. We have worked on every level 
from tiie local church, where evangehsm has to be done, to the annual conference. 

We led in plaiming and conducted the Orientation Workshop for pastors new to 
"our conference. Our conference program and institutions were explained to the new 
ministers. 

Our Conference Board continued to pubUsh The Good News and mailed it bi- 
monthly to the pastors and chairmen of Commissions on Membership and Evangehsm. 
We are pleased with the resjwnse and involvement of the chairmen as they learn and 
are reminded of the conference program of evangehsm and feel close fellowship with 
other commission chairmen and the pastors. 

Desiring to learn more of the spirit and methods of evangehsm, the board director 
attended jurisdictional and national meetings at Junaluska and San Antonio. The board 
president also attended the Council of Evangehsm at San Antonio. The director attended 
and/or shared in most of the district conferences and distiict lay ralhes, the Conference 
Laymen's Retreat at Methodist CoUege, district preachers' meetings, assisted in plan- 
ning and conducting Lay Witness Missions, and preached in local chvu-ohes as invited. 
We have desired to be a symbol and reminder and promoter of evangehsm in the total 
life of aU the church. 

The district secretaries of evangehsm have been active in serving their districts. The 
53 members of the board have been alert and active to represent the board and promote 
the cause of evangehsm as this has been possible. 

U. 
YOUTH EVANGELISM 

1. Young American Crusades, Rev. Robert H. Gibbons, evangehst and director. A 
Person County crusade was held in 1967 with tremendous appeal and response. Similar 
crusades are planned for Henderson, Rocky Mount, and Wilmington in 1968. 

The Conference Board of Evangehsm is sponsoring and assisting with Yoimg Ameri- 
can crusades. Gibbons is a member of our Conference. 

2. Youth Revivals are efFective where youths do the sponsoring and planning and 
the speaker can communicate with youth. We recommend Rev. J. H. Kinkle of om- Con- 
ference on the basis of his successful youth revivals on subdistrict and city-wide levels. 

3. Fellowship of Christian Athletes api)eals to teen-age and college youth. Most of 
the larger colleges have a chapter, made up of Christian athletes and coaches, who 
gladly go to churdies and crusades as invited to give Christian witness. We can provide 
/ou with names and addresses when you need such witnesses. 



244 North Carolina Annual Conference 

We recommend that local eflForts be made to organize chapters in the high schools. 
School authorities are usually very sympathetic to the Fellowship. 

4. Youth Retreats. College students who are affihated with Fellowship of Christian 
Athletes and Campus Crusade for Christ are available to lead youth retreats in churches 
or church camps. 

5. Sermons from Science Program, prepared by Moody Institute of Science, com- 
munity-wide, meeting in non-church buildings. Tons of science equipment are brought 
in to reach the scientific mind for Christ. 

6. Paul Anderson Program. Anderson is the world's strongest man and uses his 
strength to make a powerful personal Christian witness. 

7. We offer information and guidance in the programs here discussed. 

8. The average age of Americans today is 26, and will be 25 by 1970. Too many 
youths are drifting aimlessly. Youths are being reached for Christ by churches that prac- 
tice the youth evangelism we propose to you. All of these programs are better if spon- 
sored interdenominationaUy. 

III. 

FAMILY EVANGELISM 

Modem living tends toward the breakdown of the family, which undermines the 
church and civilization. Christian families are the best background for evangelism and 
combatting evil influences. 

We recommend local church emphasis on daily family devotions, with The Upper 
Room as a guide, provision and reading of Christian books and magazines. 

"A Utle child shall lead them." 

IV. 

INACTIVE MEMBERS AND SPIRITUAL RENEWAL 

We feel that one of the church's greatest needs is the renewal of the inactive and 
fringe members. We suggest some effective approaches. 

1. Biblical preaching that calls for conversion and discipline. 

2. Church attendance crusades from September to Christmas and/or January to 
Easter. Use the mails. Visit the people. Distribute literature on church attendance. Reg- 
ister church attendance on cards or pads available from Tidings. 

3. A Visitation of entire membership, using Mission to Members Turnover Chart 
prepared by our Conference Board, which stresses church attendance. 

Train the visitors with, the turn-over chart, "Let Us Go Into the House of the Lord." 

4. Lay Witness Missions are being held across the Conference, with churches and 
individuals revived and coming to life spiritually. We have seen churches reborn. Here 
is the best program we have seen to quicken the best members and leaders of chirrches 
and bring a vital experience to inactive members. 

About 35 of oin- churches have held missions. 

We co-sponsor with the Board of Lay Activities. Churches interested in missions 
should contact the director of our board or the conference lay leader. 

5. Assimilcrtion of New Members is as important as getting new members. 

We recommend the Fellowship Friend idea. Assign each new family to "a family in 
a similar situation of children, profession, age, to see that the new family becomes in- 
volved in the life of the church. 

Give new members something to do as soon as possible. 

Methodist training and orientation should be given to transfers from other denomi- 
nations. 

The tmnover chart, "Spiritual Life for Methodist Christians," is good in Methodist 
history, beliefs, organization, and purpose. 

V. 
SOUL- WINNING 

Last year our Conference received 4,309 members by profession and had a net gain 
of 1,999. This was good, but the spirit of Christ and the white fields challenge us to ; 
do better. 

1. Visitation Evangelism, despite modem distractions, is as effective as it was 20 
years or 20 centuries ago. Qirist did it and commanded His disciples then and now to 



Journal of Proceedings 245 

do it. Evangelism visitors should be spiritually prepared by prayer and training. The 
turnover chart, "Two by Two," is excellent. 

2. Membership Training Classes should be held for children and youth-adults before 
membership reception dvuing Holy Week, and in the fall, where possible, looking toward 
Christmas Sunday. 

Greater emphasis should be placed on adequate training of members before and 
after reception. We recommend 13 weeks of training classes. 

3. An Evangelism Spirit should permeate the entire life of the church. Magnify, 
preach, practice. The Commission on Membership and Evangelism should be alert and 
active. The great evangehsm task is too great for the pastor alone. The joy of winiung 
a person to Christ should be experienced by every member and not just the pastor. 

4. Prospects for membership may be discovered in many ways : relatives and friends 
of recent members, famihes represented in church organizations such as the Scouts, 
persons attending church and its organizations, church attendance registration, new- 
comers, censuses. The prospect hst should be built and maintained with eagerness and 
care. The prospect Hst should be a prayer list for each commission member. 

VI. 

SMALL GROUPS 

We are convinced that the growing small group movement offers hope of much- 
needed spiritual renewal for Methodist churches and members. This is a return to early 
Methodism and early Christianity. There is intimacy, sharing, prayer, Bible study, wit- 
nessing, questing, commitment, and high resolve for Christian discipline and concern 
for the church. There is a cutting edge of desire to reach and win the lost and needy 
people, a modem version of the Wesley class meeting. 

Small group suggestions for meetings in the homes: 

1. The Twelve 

2. The Yokefellows 

3. Sharing or prayer groups 

LAY WITNESS MISSIONS 

We assist churches in planning missions. 

For churches that have had missions, we recommend Christian Growth Conferences 
as foUow-up maturity studies. 

We plan to hold district or regional renewal rallies for persons who have been in 
missions for fellowship, training of persons to be future lay witnesses, and those inter- 
ested in planning missions. A similar conference rally was held February 16, 1968, at 
Raleigh with 150 enthusiastic persons attending. 

VII. 

Our Board is helping to sponsor and finance the Summer Beach Ministry of Rev. 
Hank Wilkinson and others at Nags Head. Baptists, Methodists, and Presbyterians work 
and finance together. For the last two summers, rehgious movies have been shown on 
the beach. Folk spiritual music is provided by young people. Young Christians witness 
briefly to what Christianity means to them. 

Larger plans are being made for the smnmer of 1969, including a colored circus 
tent and ice cream parlor, where youth can meet for fellowship and the religious in- 
spiration that •:^n''' be provided. 

We are fortunate in the interest and leadership of churches in the area and the vari- 
ous denominations. 

We ask your prayers for divine guidance and blessing in this opiKjrtime field of 
evangehsm. 

If you have ideas of a svunmer ministry at lakes and other beaches, let us know. 

vin. 

SYMBOLS 

1. The Lay Witness Mission symbol of the circle and three fingers is meaningful to 
persons familiar with the Lay Witness Mission. It says, "God Loves You — I Love You." 

2. The pocket cross witnesses to the carrier when he sees or feels it and it witnesses 
to the pubhc when he makes changes for purchases.

248 North Carolina Annual Conference 

REPORT OF THE N. C. CONFERENCE HISTORICAL SOCIETY 

Minutes of the 1967 Session 

The Anniversary Celebration of the Historical Society at the 1967 Annual Con- 
ference in Goldsboro, featured an address by Dr. Leo W. Jenkins, president of East 
Carolina University in Greenville, and a member of the Saint James Methodist Church 
in Greenville. 

Program Plans for the 1968 Session 

The 1968 Anniversary celebration at the Annual Conference vdll be highlighted 
by an address by Bishop Willis Jefferson King of New Orleans, Louisiana on the topic, 
"The Negro In The Methodist Church In America". In light of the merger of the 
former Central Jurisdiction Churches within the bounds of our conference vdth the 
Raleigh Area churches, we feel that his address will have a special meaning to us at 
the 1968 Conference. 

SeJ Historical Meeting 

The Historical Society Secretary, the Rev. Frank Grill, Fayetteville District trustee. 
Dr. Cecil W. Robbins, president of Louisburg College and Brooks B. Little were North 
Carolina Conference representatives to the Southeastern Jurisdictional Historical Society 
meeting at Lake Junaluska in July, 1967. 

Of Historical Note 

We commend the Rev. W. C. Wilson for his interest and concern in gathering 
items, memorabilia, etc. for our conference archives. 

We request that each church in the Annual Conference have a History and Records 
Committee. If the local church does not have a history already written, we urge the 
pastor to work with this committee or a person so designated to compile and write a 
history. 

The Historical Society Secretary has been successful this year in obtaining a nvunber 
of local church histories.

Report No. 1 
TRUSTEES OF THE METHODIST HOME FOR CHILDREN, INC. 

PART I— REVIEW OF THE YEAR 

During the past year the Methodist Home has concentrated upon the improvement 
of the quality of the services rendered to children and the gradual extension of other 
services in addition to the group care program. While group care has continued to Be 
our main service, we have recruited additional foster homes which have been licensed 
by the State Board of Public Welfare for our use and we are using them for children 
who need this kind of service. We have, also, expanded our service to selected children 
who could be served better in their own homes, with some financial assistance and 
casework service from the Methodist Home, than they would be served by breaking 
up their homes and bringing the children into our group care program. 

The effort to improve the condition of our property has continued through the 
year with painting and renovation of several of die cottages and long delayed major 
maintenance to our Administration Building. 

Both the Trustees and the administration have been continuing, during the year, the 
very careful self-study of our agency and its program which was initiated last year. 
The Group Child Care Project, associated with the School of Social Work at the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was engaged to do a professional study for 
the Home. The study had two major divisions: one was a careful research effort to 
discover what are the needs for services to children in our Armual Conference area, 
what are the trends and what are the anticipated needs to be met in the future. The 
second division was a very careful survey of the services now being offered by the 
Methodist Home for Children with reference to their nature and their quality. The 
review of these two major divisions will result in recommendations concerning the I 



Journal of Proceedings 249 

improvement of services now rendered and the addition of services w^hich should be 
rendered by the Methodist Home for Children. The research is complete. The report 
is in the hands of the Survey committee. With this information in hand and these 
recommendations before it and the Board of Trustees vdll be in a position to make 
wise decisions concerning plans for the future. Important plans that need to be made 
have been delayed until after this careful study could be prepared. 

It is not necessary to call attention to the fact that the inflationary trend puts the 
Metliodist Home in the position of having to spend more money in order to maintain 
its services at the present level. The current budget for the year ending September 
30, 1968, anticipates a deficit of nearly $20,000. The Trustees decided to set up the 
deficit budget rather than to curtail our services for this year and give time to make 
adjustments and to develop long-range plans. It has been necessary to increase the 
salaries paid, not only to meet the governmental requirements, but also to meet the 
competition from other employers. The pressure for increased expenditures for salaries 
will increase rather than decrease. 

The Methodist Home for Children is caught up in the rapid changes that are 
taking place in our whole society. Adjustments will have to be made rapidly in the 
future in the light of the changing needs for services to children and their families 
in our area, and in the light of the changing public services ofi^ered by governmental 
agencies, and in tlie light of the radically increased cost of providing the needed 
services for children. We must all be prepared, for these changes. 

With sadness we report the death of Miss Mary Ferree May 13, 1967. "Miss 
Mary", as she was affectionately known by her former students, was for many years 
the kindergarten teacher at the Methodist Home for Children. She retired in 1960. 
She went to live at the Methodist Retirement Home in Durham in 1963 where she 
died after an extended illness. Miss Mary's hfe was an inspiration and a blessing to 
a great host of people who knew her. 

The Board of Trustees wishes to commend Superintendent J. W. Lineberger and 
his excellent staff for the effective way in which they are carrying on the program of 
the Methodist Home for Children. The staff is being continually strengthened. The 
program is being continually improved.

THE METHODIST RETIREMENT HOMES, INC. 

Fart I 

THE HOME AND ITS SERVICES 

The Methodist Retirement Home represents you and your church in the care of 
many of the retired members of your church for your church has accepted the challenge 
of Christ and followed the example of John Wesley in its concern for the needs of older 
people. 

The Home is owned and operated by the North Carolina Conference vdth Trustees 
elected by the Conference. You have helped make The Home possible through an item 
in the budget of your church which is used for debt retirement and expansion of 
facilities. 

The eight new apartments and the addition to The Fowler Building, completed in 
1967, are now filled. The Home is caring for 182 members in its twenty-eight apart- 
ments, and the Gibbons and Fowler Buildings in which domiciliary and infirmary care 
are available. This is the capacity at the present time though this will be raised to 185 
when three more Members are moved permanently to The Home's infirmary. 

Twelve additional apartments are imder construction and should be completed not 
later than the first of October, 1968. This will raise the capacity of the Durham Home 
to approximately 200 and will complete the present unit for this will fiU both the dining 
room and the infirmary to capacity. 

Your Retirement Home is serving your church's retired members in a fine way. 
It is providing its Members an opportunity to be independent with dignity, to escape 
loneliness, anxiety, and the fears that come with aging. It gives its Members assurance 
of care in sickness and health in a Christian environment which is warm with love, 
comfort and security. 

"The real meaning of life at any age is found in man's relationship to God, and 
this relationship gives meaning to all human values. The goal is not to keep the aging 
busy, but to help them find in every moment an opportunity for greatness". In your 
Retirement Home members are helped in meeting this goal. In The Home they find a 
purpose for hving for two of the fears of aging are the fear of disappointing others and 
the fear of loss of ego building experiences ... I am no longer needed or wanted . . . 
In The Home the strong help the weak and everyone has an opportunity to share with 
others even as you are sharing with The Home and its members through your prayers 
and your financial support. 



Journal of Proceedings 251 

Since The Home is a part of the church it operates financially Hke the church. 
Members pay according to their ability and all receive equal services. Those who do 
not have sufficient assets are maintained in The Home by its benevolent program. 
The largest source of income for this program is The Mother's Day Offering. Other 
contributions come as gifts from individuals or groups such as the furnishing of a 
room and other memorials or by the sending of a contribution in memory of a loved 
one. Such gifts are recognized in appropriate ways. One of the major sources of in- 
come for the continuing work of The Home is through wills. 

The Home is doing much benevolent work. Fifty seven of the 182 Members are 

OAA recipients and seven additional Members are paying less than the current rate 

of $200 per month. More than 45 percent of the Members in the main building are 

"Id Age Assistance recipients. With an increasing number of members whose care 

ust be supplemented and with increasing costs, there must be additional income 

om Members, the Conference, or elsewhere. 

As a retirement home only those who are reasonably able to care for their daily 
eeds are accepted. While the rule of thumb is that the Member be able to keep her 
room with weekly maid service, dress herself, and go to the dining room without 
assistance, the final decision is left to the Medical Committee after an entrance physical 
examination. Preference is given to Methodist, both clergymen and lay people from 
eastern North Carolina though others are accepted. The Home is prepared to keep a 
nember for life once she is accepted. Requirements are minimum age 65 (62 for 
ipartments), a life service to the church and community and a need for the services 
)ffered by The Home. 

Each case is considered individually by the Admissions Committee both as to 
)hysical condition and finances. The filing of an application places the applicant under 
10 obligation. 

FINANCIAL POLICIES 

Members of The Home are on either a monthly boarding basis or on a Life Con- 
ract. Those who are financially able to pay the cost of their keep are expected to do 
0, and in addition are urged to make gifts to The Home. Others pay according to 
heir ability, and the Church, through its benevolent program, provides the difference. 

Members entering The Home on a Life Contract find complete security. The Home 
uarantees care for the member as long as she remains in The Home. In exchange 
or this protection and seciuity the member is asked to leave part of her estate to The 
lome. 

The monthly rate covers room, board, laundry, maid service, services of The Home's 
hysician, the routine medicine and the nursing geriatric care available in the Home's 
ifirmary, along witli the religious and social program of The Home. 

The comment is often made by ministers and laymen of the Conference that, "all 
"he Home is interested in is the Member's money." The fact is, that 45 percent of 
le Members in the domiciliary care facilities and infirmary are Old Age Assistance 
ecipients or are not paying as much as the cost of their care. While there are a few 
lembers who will leave The Home assets through their wills, there are many more 
ho have their monthly keep supplemented through the Benevolent Program of The 
'ome. 

Not more than one-third the Members in The Home have sufficient assets to keep 
lem for their life expectancy. Less than 20 percent of the Members will leave The 
f.ome more than a few thousands dollars if they live for their life expectancy. In the 
leantime the Church will have done many times the amount left by members in 
enevolent Work. The monthly rate charged the Members is based on actual day 
• day costs, and does not take into account cost of buildings, interest or depreciation 
hich means that the Members are not paying room rent. 

The question is often asked, "Why does The Home require people to apply for 
Id Age Assistance". There are two reasons: first, this is a legitimate means of income 
r older people who do not have sufficient income to care for themselves; second, that 
.ough the Church has been very liberal with The Home, it has not given The Home 
e benevolent money necessary to care for these people without this additional source 
income. 

A few of the Members in The Home are on a monthly boarding basis. Many of 
ese do not have sufficient assets to pay as much as the monthly rate but for some 
ason are not eligible for Old Age Assistance. 

, Approximately one-half the Members in The Home are on life contracts. The 
'ntract guarantees care for the Member for life. They are never signed without the 
ember's family, their minister's or lawyer's approval, unless the Member insists that 



252 North Carolina Annual Conference 

she fully understands and can make her own decision. The contract may be broken by 
the Member up to a year with no penalty and after a year with penalty. No assets come 
to The Home except the monthly rate until the Member is deceased. 

The Member is asked to set up all or part of her assets in a care accoimt which is 
invested by the Trust Department of Wachovia Bank and Trust Company. This 
amount is based on the Member's abilitv to pay, and the Member's hfe expectancy. 
The fund accumulates its earnings. The Home draws monthly upon this account its 
rate of care for the Member, the amount of money agreed upon at the time of the 
signing of the contract for Member's personal spending and in addition, money for the 
payment of unusual medical expenses which includes premium on hospital policy, 
dental work, glasses, etc. In exchange for the guarantee of care for life The Member, , 
after funeral expenses, etc., are paid, will leave one-half of the balance in the care 
account to The Home and dispose of the other half according to the terms of Member's 
wiU. 

Though we do not know all of the implications of Medicare, the Members have 
been signed up for both parts of the Medicare Program. This is helping the Members 
with the hospitalization and surgical bills but so far. Medicare has meant little to The 
Home. Unless the interpretation of the Medicare law is changed, it will not financially 
help The Home or the Members while in The Home. 

The program of The Home is carried out by an excellent staff of loyal and 
dedicated people who e;o the second mile in serving The Home's Members. 

The Trustees have had much to do with the success of The Home, for they have 
given freely of their time, talent and money. The leadership of Bishop Garber and the 
members of his Cabinet, as well as the leadership and financial support of the ministers ' 
and laymen of the Conference mean more than can be ex-pressed in words. 

A Member living in an apartment makes the same monthly payment as a Member i 
in the main building and has available every service offered there. 

The Member makes a capital gift to The Home which gives her the privilege of ■ 
living in an apartment as long as she is a Member of The Home; however, she may, 
on doctor's orders or by request, move into the main building. 

If you are interested in Retirement at Its Best, with privacy plus protection and 
security, and with the best medical and nursing care available when needed, youi 
should consider retirement in the Methodist Retirement Home. 

NEEDS TO BE MET 

Within the foreseeable future there will be approximately a half million people ini 
North Carolina over sixtv-five. Many of these are Methodists who are within the 
area of responsibility of the North Carolina Conference. The Home in Durham isi 
filled and the waiting list continues to grow with new applications coming every week.u 

Bishop Garber states .... "We have really only begun in the task and opportunity 
of caring for our aging members. We must as soon as possible find the way to care 
for more of our retired friends." 

The Trustees of The Home feel that it is now time for the construction of another 
home strategically located within the bounds of the Conference. Such a home should 
be near a strongly concerned Methodist constituency. There must he available utilities, 
public transportation to the area, an adequate supply of labor, both skilled and un- 
skilled, and medical services. Within a reasonable distance must be a hospital, church, 
and shopping facilities. 

This home will bring to the community a fine Christian institution. It will give 
those who have a part in making it possible a sense of sharing in the name of Christ 
with many retired people who need someone to care for them. This home will serve 
the retired people of die area, for 50 percent of the Members in the Durham Home 
come from a radius of less than fifty miles. Though the Home in Durham has excellent 
facilities and its Members receive the finest services available they would stiU Hke 
to keep closer geographical ties with the place they call home. 

While the Conference, through the Trustees of The Methodist Retirement Homes, 
Incorporated, is prepared to invest some money in this new home, a large part of the 
initial investment will have to come through a Capital Funds Campaign by the Con- 
ference or from interested individuals or groups in the area where the home vdll be, 
located. The Church will add to the facilities as there is a need and the Church vdll 
help with die large amount of benevolent work the home will do. I 

This home offers an excellent opportunity for a living memorial for some indi-, 
vidual or family, for the home will grow and serve for generations. ', 

THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY AND A CHALLENGE FOR YOU.

GOLDEN CROSS COMMITTEE 
Section I 

Our group insurance program continues to receive support and cooperation by the 
ministers and churches. This cooperation and support demonstrates the fact that the 
insurance program is serving to fill a need within the conference. 

The insurance program combined with the federal program of Medi-Care has 
decrease the amount used for the Golden Cross Program. 

The committee makes the following recommendations: 

I. The Golden Cross support be continued at $20 per day during 1968-69, thereafter 
imended as follows: 

1. "That the Blue Cross-Blue Shield hospital coverage provided for the effective 
■ninisters and Approved Supplies of our Annual Conference be increased to give the fol- 
: owing coverage: 

' "$25.00 per day room allowance with H comprehensive benefits, also extended 

benefits; medical payment at the rate of $12.00 for the first day, $8.00 for the sec- 
ond day, and $4.00 per day thereafter; and that Schedule L of the 'Surgical Bene- 
fits' be adopted, which provides approximately a 25 percent increase in surgical 
payments." 

2. "That this policy go into effect July 1, 1969, in order to give the churdhes an 
)pportunity to make allowance for the increased cost in the budget for the new year." 

3. "That the premiums be billed in the following manner: 

"Two quarterly billings at the rate of $57.96 per family, per quarter, to be paid 
)y the dhiu-oh or dharge; two quarterly payments in the same amount to be paid by the 
ninister. For a single minister the rate of $20.23 per quarter." 

II. We commend the work of Chaplain Wesley Aitken and his staff in the 
chaplaincy Program at Duke Medical Center. The Chaplaincy Program presents the 
I'itness of the church in one of the finest ways. The program makes the service of 
haplains available to persons from across the state and the eastern portion of the 
ation. We recommend that our support of the Chaplaincy Program be increased 
rem $4200 to $4700 for the Conference year 1968-1969. 

Section II 

I. The committee recognizes the work with alcoholics of the Rev. J. C. Dunn 
1 the Good Shepherd Home at Lake Waccamaw, N. C. We reconunend that the 
onference continue its support of the home in the amount of $2500 for the Conference

REPORT OF THE COM\nTTEE ON IN-SERVICE TRAINING 
FOR PASTORS 

The Committee's v^^ork during this conference year has been an evaluation and 
planning for coordinated effort in continuing education for pastors wdthin the North 
Carolina Annual Conference. Recommendations regarding the vi'ork of continuing 
education for the coming quadrennium are herein offered. 

I 

Recommendations approved for the 1968-1969 Conference Year include two clinics 
on "Rethinking the Ministry" in Greenville and Fayetteville led by Dr. Carlyle Marney 
of The Interpreter's House. The Committee has also approved clinics in "BibUcal 
Theology" for the Wilmington and Burlington Districts. 

A scheduled meeting with leadership from the Department of Continuing Educa- 
tion, the Board of Education in Nashville, Term, has been set for late May to enable 
the present Committee to formulate additional plans in light of the General Con- 
ference legislation regarding continuing; education. 

We are grateful to the Duke Endowment and the Annual Conference for their 
support of In-Service Training, during the first quadrennium of its existence as a 
committee. 

The work of this group has been evidence of a hunger on the part of many of our 
pastors to be "on the contemporary cutting edge of life". The success of clinics in 
Preaching, Biblical Theology and Pastoral Counseling in the Greenville, New Bern, 
Goldsboro, Rocky Mount, Sanford and Elizabeth City Districts has provided the 
impetus needed to project our larger concerns for continuing education. 

Therefore the following recommendations and proposals are made to the Annual 
Conference. 

n 

RESOLUTION 

We recommend that the Commission on In-Service Training of the North Carolina 
Annual Conference be discontinued, and that its work and program be expanded by the 
estabhshment of a Commission on Continuing Education of the Ministry, for tlie purpose 
of developing a more adequate and coordinated program of continuing education for the 
ministers of the Conference. 

We recommend that this Commission be composed of the following members: 

1. One representative elected by the Conference Board of Ministerial Training and! 
Qualifications. 

2. One representative elected by the Conference Board of Education. 

3. One representative elected by the Conference Board of Evangelism. j 

4. One representative elected by the Conference Board of Mission;. / 

5. One representative elected by the Conference Commission on Town and Country 
Work. (Discontinued as a Commission) 

6. One representative elected by the Conference Commission on Christian Social Con- 
cerns. 

7. One representative elected by the Board of Managers of the North Carolina Pas-j 
tors' School. I 

8. One District Superintendent selected by the Cabinet. ■ 

9. One representative from the faculty or administrative staff of Louisburg College | 
appointed by the President of Louisburg College. 

10. One representative from the facility or administrative staff of North Carolina 
Wesleyan College appointed by its President. 



; 



Journal of Proceedings 255 

11. One representative from the faculty or administrative staff of Methodist College 
appointed by its President. 

12. The Director of Continuing Education of the Divinity School, Duke University. 

13. Five members-at-large appointed by the Bishop. 

We recommend that the Bishop appoint a convener to organize the Commission, 
electing a Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary and other officers as desired, as soon as' 
practical following the June, 1968 session of the North Carohna Annual Conference. 

We further recommend that the Commission, when organized, have one meeting with 
the officers of the present Commission on In-Service Training for the purpose of coordi- 
nating and completing plans for seminars and clinics already projected for the Conference 
year 1968-69. 

It is further recommended that the Commission cooperate with the Department of 
Ministerial Education, Division of Hig"her Education, Board of Education, The Methodist 
Church and its Associate Director in charge of continuing education of the ministry with 
regional and ecumenical conmiissions, and with the Divinity School of Duke University. 

PURPOSES TO BE SERVED 

We recommend that the commission established to plan and project schools and semi- 
nars for the Continuing Education of Pastors work diligently to coordinate such pro- 
jected plans of several boards and agencies of our Conference so as to have fewer meet- 
ings of a higher quality in affording a stimulus to continue the educational preparation 
and enrichment of all the ministers in our Conference. We beheve such a program woidd 
supplement, not supplant, and might be coordinated with programs presently offered 
oy oiu- theological seminaries. 

We recommend that such sessions for continuing education should provide the op- 
Dortimity for continuing education for all men serving appointments from college level to 
,p-aduate level; for updating theological education by refresher material and by con- 
rontation with new approaches to theological material and methods; for sharing new 
deas and improved methods in Church Administration. 

We recommend that sermonizing and lecturing be held to a reasonable minimiun, 
vith strong emphasis on assigned reading, discussion groups led by able churchmen, 
xpen forum studies of assigned texts, by review of the better audio-visual materials and 
nethods, and by supervising creative writing efforts from each minister. The small class, 
he seminar, the tutorial, and the directed study methods should be freely used to sup- 
)lement a few excellent platform presentations. 

We would recommend that program promotion be avoided in these schools. Any suoh 
ohool sihould be encouraged, but completely voluntary, or "low pressure." We would en- 
lorse the value of financial inducements for pastors of low to moderate income, with the 
.)05sibility of scholarships offered to each minister the first two or three years in the Con- 
erence. 

As business and industry do, we should make it easy and essential to remain "fresh" 
nd aware of new ideas and methods, aware of the change in the church, in our society, 
nd in the educational and business world.

REPORT OF BOARD OF LAY ACTIVITIES 

; No. 1 

'; The 1967 Annual Conference speaker for the Armiversary Hour of the Board of 
'.ly Activities was the Conference Director of Leadership Development, Dr. Paid 
.irdin. III of the Duke University School of Law. The subject of his address was, 
'ro Into All the World". Mr. Walter F. Anderson of Raleigh was recognized as the 
Jiyman of the Year and given a hfe membership certificate in the Methodist Men's 
(?anization. Mr. Anderson responded with moving words of gratitude. 

The theme of the Board of Lay Activities during the 1967-68 Conference Year 
vs centered on the Stewardship of the Laity. Emphasis was directed to the following 
i;as of concern = 

— Stewardship of Tithing 

— Stewardship of Time and Ability 

— Stewardship of Ministerial Support 

— Stewardship of Gifts and Wills 

Te Se.J. Laymen's Conference at Lake Junaluska on July 27-30 was held with a 
edacity record in attendance. It was estimated over 2,000 persons were on the 
^jembly Groimds as a result of this annual jurisdictional meeting. The theme of 
(ristian Commitment was given attention throughout the program of the conference. 

The Conference Laymen's Retreat was held on the campus of Methodist College, 
lyetteville, over the week-end of August 26-27 under the resource leadership of 
E James W. Sells and Reverend Alvin B. Weston of the Se.J. Office in Atlanta, 
Corgia. Approximately 400 laymen, representing all eleven districts, were in attend- 
a;e as treatment was given the stewardship program for the year. 

.The 5th annual District Training Sessions on Leadership Development were held 
iithe eleven districts during the month of September. In addition to the heretofore 
naed areas of stewardship concern the following subjects were offered = 

— Commission on Stewardship and Finance 

— Committee on Pastoral Relations 

— Every Member Visitation 
, 'Christ Ambassadors" was the theme selected by the General Board of Lay Ac- 
Hes to be given emphasis on Layman's Day for Sunday, October 8, 1967. The 



258 North Carolina Annual Conference 

scriptural basis was taken from II Corinthians 5:20, "We come therefore as Christ's 
ambassadors". 

One of the truly great meetings of the church was held at the Memorial Auditorium 
in Raleigh on Monday, November 6, 1967, under the primary sponsorship of the Com- 
mission on Promotion and Cultivation and the Board of Lay Activities. 2000 Methodists, 
representing nearly 500 local churches, gathered for the first Conference-wide Steward- 
ship Rally in ihe Raleigh Area. With Bishop N. Garber as the presiding officer^ 
inspirational addresses were heard from the following on the general theme of "We 
Witness Through Stewardship": "Renewal Through Stewardship," Dr. G. Don Gil- 
more; "What Christian Stewardship Means to Me," Bobby Richardson; "The Support 
of the Ministry," R. R. Allen; "Stewardship Motivation," Walter F. Anderson; "Steward- 
ship is the Answer!" Dr. James Roy Smith. 

Tapes of the addresses were made and are available for use in local churche; 
through the TRAFCO office in the Methodist Building in Raleigh. In addition, the 
combined choirs of Louisburg College, Methodist College, and N. C. Wesleyai 
College, under the direction of the Reverend Robert Gibbons, stirred the large gathering 
of Methodist with their excellent singing of several selections. 

The Annual District Lay Rallies of the North Carolina Conference continue tc 
hold the attention of our people after fifteen consecutive years. The 1968 series honorec 
Bishop Paul Neff Garber and gave recognition to the significant part he has made tc 
the success of these annual lay meetings. Since 1953, Bishop Garber has attended ancij 
participated in 130 of the district rallies held in our conference. I 

Since 1964 nearly $19,000.00 has been made possible in Christian Vocationa. 
Scholarships through the rally offerings received. Records in attendance were estabi 
lished this year in three districts: Fayetteville, Wilmington and Greenville. Ladies 
were included in the invitation to three of the district meetings: Fayetteville, Wilming 
ton, and Durham.

Since the beginning of the No-Silent Pulpit Program in 1955, hundreds of laymei 
throughout the conference have made it possible for worship services to be held h 
every local church during the Lenten Season. In most districts, training sessions fo 
lay speakers have been scheduled with varying degrees of success. 

One of the certain indications of spiritual renewal coming to the church in ou 
time is noted in the Lay Witness Missions. Forty churches in the conference hav 
conducted such missions over the past two years. There are presently over 300 laymen- 
men, women, and youth — ^who have volunteered their services in the North Carolin 
Conference as Lay Witnesses. The Board of Lay Activities, cooperating with th 
Board of Evangelism, under tlie leadership of the Reverend Howard M. McLamb, i 
lending every support possible to the missions held in the conference.

The new ofBcers of the Board of the Laity were selected as follows: Chairman and 
Conference Lay Leader, James T. Patrick; Vice-Chairman, J. Edward Legates; Secre- 
ary, Grier L. Garrick; Associate Conference Lay Leader (Stewardship and Finance), 
Valter F. Anderson; Associate Conference Lay Leader (Lay Life and Work), 
Villiam C. Marley. 

As Chairman of the Board of Lay Activities since 1963 I wish to pay tribute and 
xpress appreciation to the five Associate Conference Lay Leaders who have served 
'ell in die areas assigned to their responsibility: Charles L. McCuJlers, Methodist 
len; William C. Marley, Lay Evangelism; James F. Rogers, Stewardship; Frank H. 
ilason. Lay Speaking; Paul Hardin IH, Leadership Development. 

' To Bishop Paul N. Garber, the members of his Conference Cabinet, who have 
leant more to the work of the board than words can express, I offer my sincere 



appreciation for their cooperative labors. 
f* To the coun ' 



countless ntunber of devoted pastors and dedicated laymen of the North 
iarolina Annual Conference, I extend the greeting associated with the Lay Witness 
fission, "God loves you, and so do I". You have helped to make the past five years, 
: lay leader of the best Annual Conference in Methodism, the most meaningful of 

y liJFe. 

■ For the infinite goodness of God's mercy and patience during these years, I am 

ateful beyond expression. 

Report No. 2 

By action of the Armual Conference of 1963, the eight-year tenure was restored on 
. major boards of the conference, vdth the exception of the Secretary of the Board of 
'nsions (page 226, 1963 Conference Journal). In addition to this exception an amend- 
:i3nt was approved, and later recorded on page 286 of the 1964 Conference Journal, 
lereby with reference tO' the Board of Lay Activities, the eight-year tenvu-e would 
iply to office on the board rather than membership. 

This was made possible in order that time spent as an associate district lay leader 
rmld not coimt as time against a possible tenure as district lay leader. Nor would time 
i the office of associate district lay leader and/or district lay leader count against a 
]ssible tenure of office as conference lay leader. 

Due to the increasing number of offices available on the board in recent years, such 
J district and conference directors of various areas of lay work, and the desire to in- 
\[ve more of our laymen in the activities of the board, the Conference Board of Lay 
y tivities, meeting at the Methodist Building in Raleigh on March 30, 1968, voted to 
lommend to the 1968 North Carolina Annual Conference of The United Methodist 
( urch, meeting in Fayetteville on June 4-7, that effective with the 1968-1972 quadren- 
rrni, the tenure of any office on the Board of the Laity be considered a quadrennial 
apointment, subject to the annual election of those officers as required by the Discip- 
l?. This recommendation, with the proviso that any interim vacancy in office filled 
cing a given quadrennium, would not count against time eligible for service in the 
s 16 office dturing the next full quadrennium succeeding. 

Report No. 3 

For a number of years it has proven a hardship on the part of many professional 
a I business men to attend week-day meetings scheduled by various conference boards 
a,l agencies. This practice has hindered, if not discouraged, lay participation on the 
c ference program planning level. At a time when the church is calling for greater 
k involvement in its total mission it would seem every effort should be made that would 
gs encouragement in this direction. 

The Board of the laity is conscious of the general convenience of the meeting sohed- 
J i during the week-days for the average minister. Certainly, the attendance of both 
i clergy and the laity is to be desired if the total church is to be represented. 

It is threfore requested that the 1968 Annual Conference direct those conference 
>rds and agencies which have equal, or near equal, lay and clergy representation on 
ii memberships to canvass their members by mail and ascertain if there should be 
a:e minorities in their membership who would prefer at least one meeting of the or- 
?ization scheduled for a Saturday during the conference year. 

It is further requested that any foUow-through action taken on the findings be left 
che responsibihty of those boards and agencies involved.

For the nine-month period ending February 28, 1968, I am pleased to report thi 
yovu Foundation appears to be headed for another successful year. In spite of certai 
economic uncertainties, the investments and assets of the Foundation have stood u' I 
remarkably well, showing a steady growth and improved return on invested capita''.

ight of current economic conditions. The advice and counsel of Moody's Inc. is still 
lighly valued. Our over-all investment policy of "progressive conservatism" seems to be 
veil foimded. 

During the year, the quarterly Board Meetings have been well attended. It is antici- 
jated that our new procedure of maihng to all directors, in advance of quarterly Board 
vleetings, detailed financial information will be continued. Dxu-ing the year we have 
■ncouraged, and have received from your Board of Directors, many valuable suggestions, 
n this connection, during the past year, we were pleased to have Hugh G. Dupree join 
he Board as a representative from the Methodist Home for Children. 

The skill and active participation of A. C. Edwards will be truly missed. His spirit 
nd constructive contributions through the years will, however, be of continuing benefit 

all. Mr. Edwards was one of the early group that conceived and brought into being 
he Methodist Foundation, Inc. He served faithfully until his recent death.

1 "Membership shall expire as soon after tlie quadrennial meeting of said North Caro- 
na Annual Conference as a successor has been elected, except members elected by the 
.lembership on the happening of a vacancy shall expire ujxjn the election of a successor, 
''hich may be done at the next regular meeting of the Board or Commission charged 
,'ith the election of such member." 

Therefore, we respectfully direct attention to the necessity for action by the agen- 
ies involved and we respectfully suggest that such action might be accomphshed at the 
me of reorganization for the new quadrennium for the several groups. 

With revisions, the membership shall be constituted as follows:

DEPARTMENT OF GIFTS AND WILLS ' 

No. 3 

It is now more than ten years since the dream began. I was first related to it wha 
invited by Bishop Garber and a small group of men to come and give guidance to th( 
organizing of a Wills program by the Methodist Fund. 

My first suggestion was to change the name from Methodist Fund to Methodis 
Foimdation, Inc. This change along with suggested plans for operation was presents 
to the Board of Methodist Fund the same day. It was imanimously voted to change th( 
charter to read Methodist Foundation, Inc., and to incorporate a Gifts and Wills pro 
gram as a chartered part of the future operation of the board. 

Little dreaming of the far-reaching action of the day, I returned to Philadelphia t 
find on the following morning on my ofi^ice desk, an air mail special dehvery letta 
inviting me to be the first director of the department. I began work in the North Caro 
lina Conference on March 1, 1959. 

This was an entirely new venture, not only for the Conference, but for Methodism 
Since our beginning we have given more than 25 Conferences copies of om- oharte 
and by-laws, with method of operation, and by corresjwndence and visitation th 
Conferences are now operating Methodist Foundations. 

The special gifts money of the Conference has been, and rightly so, directed to 
two new fovu--year colleges, and the strengthening of our junior college. This 
educational program has not obscinred our other major causes, for our promotional pre] 
gram has included all the causes of the Conference both great and small. 

Some of the greatest works are never recognized until long after the author of th 
work has been long gone. Many of the world's greatest artists lived and died in loneL

less and poverty, never seeing their works in art galleries, while eentur'es later they 
ire sold at prices of a miUion dollars or more. The writers of the world's gieatest music 
lever heard their scores publicly acclaimed by voice or instrument. They, Uke painters, 
lied in need, without their works recognized. It remained for the years to reveal. 

All reachers for the great and good must endirre as seeing the invisible. It is this 
iision of the future that gives strength to endure. 

; One of the greatest gifts and wills program was inaugurated and realized in oiur 
|iidst. Trinity College, a small strugghng college named for the Father, Son, and Holy 
.pirit. A small college built by the sacrifices of many, but the great Duke University 
/'ould never have been built without their gifts. A far-seeing business man saw the hope 
)f fulfilling the dream every man has of stamping upon moving history, his name. Mr. 
ihike's vision and generosity stands as a monmnent and an example for all men, both 
ireat and small. The Duke wiU has provided this year for this Conference $138,000.00 
ij>r Church Extension, $3b,750.00 for Minimum Salary, and $85,755.06 for Pensions — 
i total of $262,505.06. These are recmring gifts every year; the total may vary some 
Irom year to year. In addition, the Conference trustees have $311,000.00 in trust for 
\e benefit of retired ministers. A total of $573,505.06 — over half a miUion dollars, 
iirthermore, most of the ministers had their tuition to the Seminary from the Duke 
inds. 

: In simple aijpreciation of all this, every minister and layman of this Conference 
ho is not already supporting the Wills program should face about and give full sup- 
)rt to it. All pulpits should be open and the director invited to present to all congre- 
itions, enlisting all Methodists to make wills leaving something for Conference causes 
advance the caiise of Christ in North Carolina. 

There would be no schools such as Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Browne, and we may 
elude a late-comer, Boston University. All these are the results of gifts and wills. The 
tginning of these institutions was slow and meager; the gifts and wills were smaU and 
.>w. The momentum of growth changed all this, all because there were those willing 
; work, pray, beUeve, and sujyport according to their abilities. 

: We could also point out the great programs of philanthropy and charity as shown 
1; hospitals, homes for children, homes for the aged, missions for the fallen, national 
id world missions of the Methodist Chiu-ch. AH of these, supported by gifts and wills, 
lye reached imdreamed-of greatness. 

• The last 15 years of the North Carolina Conference have shown more growth and 
jDgress than all its preceding history. This was because the Conference launched the 
(atral treasury, new boards, commissions, Methodist Foundation with its Department 
( Gifts and Wills, and with many new congregations. No conference in Methodist 
1 tory has made such strides as the North Carohna Conference has in this period. 

Mr. Gumey P. Hood, first president of the Methodist Fund, and the Methodist Foim- 
(tion, did not rest imtil the Gifts and Wills program was launched. He was ably assist- 
e by Marvin J. CoweU, Dr. John C. Brauer, Charles Hubbard, John M. Dozier, O. L. 
Ivthaway, Dr. Charles Jordan, J. E. Garhngton, Lon Edwards — ^just to name a few of 
it many who saw a vision and had a dream. 

In the early part of my work, Mr. Hood and I traveled thousands of miles meeting 
likers, trust officers, church leaders — both clerical and lay, with men and women of 
rans. We would be gone for days at a time, aU at his own expense. This Conference 
vl never know of his many gifts. He gave in life and he gave in death. 

John M. Dozier, second president of the Foundation, was vitally interested in this 
F gram. Both he and Mr. Hood gave more time to this department than to the invest- 
nat program. John spent many hours in my office after the closing business of the day, 
pnning for and working for the wills program, and also traveled hundreds of miles 
Slaking and supporting it in any way he could. 

When Mr. Dozier left, the nominating committee came to me and asked me about 
a accessor. I told them I saw only one man for this hour, and that was our vice presi- 
d.t, Sidney Gulledge. They talked with him, came back and told me that due to his 
h vy work load he felt he could not take on more at this time. I suggested they go back 
ai: ask him to reconsider, as the Foundation greatly needed his capable leadership and 
eterience in handling investments, and that we would take care of all the clerical 
Ol.rters for him. I don't need to tell you how ably he has done this, and how deeply 
w are in his debt. 

John Brauer moving to California was a great blow. He was a leader in the Wills 
pi gram and gave so wiUingly of his time and resoiirces. Let me parenthetically say — 
bhas organized a Methodist Fotmdation with Gifts and Wills Department in the 



264 North Carolina Annual Conference 

California-Nevada Conference. The treasurer of that Conference says his program is 
growing by leaps and bounds. 

Mr. Lee Parker has so ably stepped into the place vacated by Dr. Brauer and is 
giving freely of his time to this program. While know^ledge of wills cannot be madei 
public, Mr. Parker is giving good account of himself. 

Our Wills Dinners and meetings have always proved profitable. It is to be hoped thati 
in the not too distant future an honor roll can be started of those who have made willsl 
favoring the cause of Christ that may be made pubhc. 

Mrs. Gwendolyn Mayes, secretary of the department and my personal secretary, hasi 
given faithful and loyal service. i 

Every pastor and every layman should give this department full support, for giftsl 
and wills are the only hope to sustain and promote the institutions, boards, and com-i 
missions. We cannot hope to do it from local church budgets and on Sunday collections.! 
The Conferences that have tried it have lost their colleges or the schools remained small 
and struggUng, as did their boards and agencies. Our Conference wiU be no diflFerem! 
unless we promote our vdlls program. 

My years here have been good years. The Conference has been most kind, and the 
ministry gracious.

COMMISSION ON PUBLIC RELATIONS AND METHODIST 
INFORMATION 

The work of the conference director during the 1967-68 conference year began 
before the previous year's annual session in Goldsboro was concluded. Coverage at the 
Goldsboro session was outstanding and we are grateful to the press, radio and televisior 
for their cooperation. 

A. Diu-ing the past year, the director attended the Workshop on Public Relationj 
and Methodist Information at Lake Junaluska, sponsored by the national commission 
leading one of the sessions at the workshop. 

B. We have provided publicity for a number of conference boards and agenciei 
as requested during the year. 

C. The conference director has also cooperated with the personally arranged 
contacts and interviews for the TRAFOO^produoed "American Projile." The profile! 
of five laymen in the North Carolina Annual Conference plus a Negro physician hav« " 
been shared with the national and world-wide audience of "Profile", which seeks ti 
tell the story of the unusual un-ugly American. It is heard on almost 400 radio station * 
in the United States and is beamed overseas via the Voice of America. 

D. The director has cooperated with the editor of the North Carolina Cihristiai 
Advocate in providing news coverage and pictures including the retirement of th( 
conference treasvuer, the Bishop's Confirmation Class, etc. With the help of til 
District Directors, we also planned for a salute to Bishop Paul Garber on his retire 
ment with a special section of the Advocate on May 23. 

E. The coverage by the director of General Conference was widely distributee 
A total of 24 newspapers and 25 radio stations were given releases, reports or "beepers 
from the conference in Dallas. 

F. We are grateful to those directors in each district who publicized distric 
events.

United Campus Ministry 

The Wesley Foundation, while not organizationally connected with the other de- 
aominational groups is working cooperatively toward providing a more effective pro- 
,jram on the campus. The campus ministers meet weekly together to plan student- 
raculty gatherings, study groups and are presently sponsoring a Fine Arts Seminar to 
'^ew York City. Two workshops were held this year for parish ministers in Eastern 
^orth Carohna utilizing University personnel and resources. 

I might add that this has been the most productive year for our Wesley Foundation 
jrogram since my appointment to this ministry. The Student Center Building is being 
ised more by students and faculty for worship and fellowship and those students who 
ire more than casually involved attest to the value of this ministry through their 
inthusiasm and actions. As one minister noted just recently, "It's difficult to find a 
/acant room these days in the Methodist Student Center." Many thanks to those who 
ire making this ministry possible — the Woman's Society of Christian Service, the 
nterconference Commission and most especially, the local church.

n. 

PRINCIPLES GOVERNING THE USE OF MINIMUM SALARY FUNDS 

The Commission urges each charge receiving Minimimi Salary fvmds, its minister, 
and district superintendent so to administer the afi^airs of the charge that it may move 
as rapidly as possible toward full financial support. 

To enable the conference, the commission, and the superintendents to carry on theii 
cooi)erative eflForts in tmderstanding, harmony, and for the greatest good for all con- 
cerned the following principles and procedvues are set forth: 

Aid to Charges 

1. All requests for financial assistance on pastors' salaries for the succeeding year 
shall be presented by the district superintendent to the secretary of the Commission on 
Minimimi Salary not later than five days after the May Cabinet meeting. 

2. Minimimi Salary aid provided by the conference shall not be used to raise the 
salary above the minimum set by the conference. 

3. The family or marital status of the pastor at the time of assignment to the charge 
sihall govern the amount paid the minister for the entire conference year. 

4. In considering the salary for a charge, we call attention to the fact that the Com- 
mission on Minimum Salary must count salary, travel, utilities, bonuses, and expense 
allowances as salary in making ajypropriations to the charge. 



"Travel allowance is based on the distance of student's parsonage from the school he attends. 
When the parsonage is 25 miles or less, it shall be $100.00; when the parsonage is more than 25 
miles but less than 50 miles, it shall be $200.00; when the parsomage is more than 50 miles but less 
than 75 miles, it shall be $300.00; when the parsonage is more than 75 miles but less than 100 miles, 
it shall be $400.00; and when the parsonage is 100 miles or more from school, $500.00 shall be « 
maximum travel allowance. 



Journal of Proceedings 267 

a. We stress the importance of reporting all such contributions, so that all min- 
isters involved may be treated alike. 

Dividing Charges 

5. The Commission on Minimum Salary suggests that, as a general practice, no ap- 
pointments be made with a membership of less than 200, if 3ie charge is to expect 
Minimiun Salary support. 

a. Divisions of circuits should be on the basis of mutual agreement by all church- 
es on the circuit rather than simply from the desire of the larger church to withdraw 
for its own benefit and advancement. 

I b. If a new charge is to be served by a student pastor, that fact should be given 

Ithe charge before it agrees to its new status. 

! 6. When the division of a charge is considered necessary and minimiun salary is to 
I3e requested for either of the new charges resulting from such division, such project 
;hall be presented to the secretary of the Commission on Minimiun Salary not later than 
we days after the May Cabinet meeting, so that a satisfactory evaluation can be made 
^y the Commission. Without its approval the Commission shall not be obhgated to pro- 
•nde minimum salary support for either of the churches resulting from such division. 
I 7. In the division of circuits where one church seeks to become a station, it is rec- 
ommended that such church assume all salary obligations and its proportionate share 
>f World Service and Benevolences. 

a. It is recommended that the remainder of the division pay 80% of pastoral sup- 
xDrt, and its share of World Service and Benevolences. 

b. The Commission on Minimum Salary further recommends that each charge 
vhich has received, or shall hereafter receive Minimum Salary aid, shall make every 
easonable effort to reduce this aid by 20% each year until the charge has accepted full 
!elf-support. The district superintendents are to inform all charges receiving, or to re- 
eive aid in the future, of this regulation. This requirement must be kept in mind in 
>reparing for any requests. 

c. When a charge has been established as a student appointment and desires to 
>e served by a full-time minister, this change may take place at such time as the charge 
hall pay 80% of the amount needed to provide such full-time ministerial support and 
hall agree to reduce the aid by 2Q% each year. 

d. When there is a division of a charge forming one or more student appoint- 
lents, the student appointment must pay 80% of said salary. 

A Nkw Church as a Charge 

8. When a new church is to be established and becomes a new charge, the district 
jperintendent shall present for study the complete details of the proposed project not 
iter than five days after the May Cabinet meeting. These details shall be presented to 
oth the Conference Board of Missions and the Commission on Minimmn Salary. If such 
ew church is approved by the Board and Commission, the r'^mmission shall provide 
linLmum Salary assistance and the Board shall supplement the salary to make it ade- 
uate, and shall assist the new charge in providing living quarters for the minister and a 
lace to meet and wors'hip. It shall be understood that each year the new charge shall 
3cept more of the budget until it becomes self-supix)rting. We require that each new 
lurch shall become self-supporting in a period of ten years or less, or assume circuit 
atiis. 

a. Exception will be made if charge has made reasonable effort to become self- 
ipporting and is willing and able to increase salary at least $300.00 annually, increase 
i World Service proportionately, and reach full support within five more years.

BOARD OF MINISTERIAL TRAINING AND QUALIFICATIONS 

Report No. 1 
GENERAL STATEMENT 

Our Board is composed of twenty-one of our most consecrated ministers. Thes« 
men give freely of their time to guide young men to become active and eflFecti 
ministers of our Church. We are grateful for the splendid cooperation they have givei 
and the generous amount of time spent in this work. We especially wish to comment 
our two faithful registrars. Reverend Ben F. Musser and Reverend Christian White 
who have rendered untiring service for the Board. 

We were saddened last summer by the sudden passing of the Reverend Robert W 
Bradshaw, one of the faithful and devoted members of our Board. We greatly mis. 
his wise counsel, gentle spirit, and Christian witness which were an inspiration to ali 
of us. The confidence he inspired in young ministers challenged them to do thai 
best for Christ and His Kingdom. 

Proposals to the General Conference concerning the ministry, if adopted by tha 
body, will serve to coordinate the total work of the Board of the Ministry. New term 
would be used and an associate membership established which would lend mor 
prestige to the ministerial office. 

Courses of Study School 

The Board supervises the Approved Supply Pastor in his course of study. Ov"\ 
conference has 150 of these men who are required by the Discipline to take four-yea 
studies in the summer Pastors' School at Duke or elsewhere. The 20th Session of th 
Duke School will be held from July 8 through August 8, 1968. Scholarship aid cj 
$100.00 is available from our conference for each man who attends the four week;* 
and $50.00 for "License to Preach" or "Introductory Studies" which covers a tw| 
week period. Under unusual circumstances this work may be taken by correspondenct 
but only when authorized by the Conference Board. Only one year's work may b 
taken per year. i 



Journal of Proceedings 269 

I Spring Meetings 

The Spring Meetings for interviewing candidates will be held at St. Paul Church, 
boldsboro, March 24, and 25, 1969, beginning at 9:00 a.m.; and one day at Duke 
viemorial Church, Durham, March 26, 1969, begirming at 9:00 a.m. and concluding 
iit 3:00 p.m. 
[ Recommendations 

I 1. That no one be appointed to serve a charge who has not completed the "Studies 
ior License to Preach." Such a person cannot legally perform the ministerial duties 
10 his members such as matrimony, nor administer the Sacraments. The course of 
;tudy must be taken through a Correspondence Department of Ministerial Education 
|,t Nashville, or at the Duke Pastors' School. 

' 2. Those who wish to continue to hold their Local Preachers License are required 
iiy the Disciphne to complete a minimum of one-half year of the course of study each 
rear (Par. 307.2). When this is not done, he loses his local preachers license and must 
tart over again by taking the course on License to Preach, using the current study 
ourse. A maximum of twelve years is allowed him to complete the Introductory 
tudies and the four-year studies. District Committees on the Ministry are urged to 
losely supervise this work. 

3. Part-time Approved Supply Pastors are required to complete a minimum of 
ne-half year of the course of study each year until all four years are completed 
:>ar. 318). 

4. May 18, 1969 will be Ministry Sunday in the United Methodist Church. Every 
astor is expected "to preach on the meaning of Christian Vocation and the call and 
hallenge of the ministry and other types of full-time church work, and to advise with 
outh, students, and young adults about their educational and vocational plans." Let 
very pastor take the lead here. The crying need is for more persons to man our pul- 
its who are adequately trained to meet the challenge of this critical hour. 

5. All pastors who are new to the North Carolina Conference are required to 
ttend the Orientation Workshop which is held early in July of each year. This 
"orkshop is free and provides a new minister a wonderful opportimity to learn the 
;orth Carohna Conference program. 

6. The Manual for Pastoral Relations Committees is excellent and should be used 
y all churches in our conference. 

The One Percent Ministerial Educational Plan 

We heartily recommend the continuation of the One Percent Educational Plan 
id insist that this item be included in the local church annual budget. Many of our 
ten are being assisted by this fund and others need such aid.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MISSIONS 



r 

f 



The North Carohna Conference Board of Missions believes that mission is not a 
special function of a part of the church. Rather, it is the whole church in action. Mis- 
sion is the body of Christ expressing Christ's concern for the whole world. It is local 
and it is world-wide. It is God's people seeking to make all men members of the people 
of God. In fadt, mission is the function for which the church exists. Peter said to the 
church, "You are . . . God's owti people." We are God's people for one specific purpose: 
"that you may declare the wonderful deeds of him who called you out of darkness into 
his marvelous light." (I Peter 2:9). To receive God's kindness, in being made a member 
of his people, lays upon each and every one the obhgation to declare that kindness so 
that others, too, may become his people. 

In order to fulfill this concept of mission, the North Carolina Conference Board of 
Missions has been at work in many areas. This report is a partial siunmary of what has 
been done, and a projection of what we hope to do in the months immediately ahead. 
Included are also certain requests and words of appreciation. 

APPRECIATION 

Our appreciation is extended to Bishop Paul N. Garber for his continued support of 
the Board of Missions diuing his tenure as our bishop. Bishop Garber has been an inspi- 
ration to the programs and activities of the Board of Missions. We thank God for his 
presence with us, and as he leaves as our leader, we pray God's continued presence 
with him and Mrs. Garber. 

The Board of Missions would like to express its appreciation to Dr. T. Marvin Vick, 
Jr., who for eight years was president of the Board. Under Dr. Vick's leadership, the 
Board of Missions made significant advancements in all the areas of its concern and out- 
reach. We are fortimate to have had his guidance for this period of time. 

GENERAL REPORTS 

Church Extension 

The Board of Missions, North Carolina Annual Conference, Southeastern Jurisdiction 
of The Methodist Church, Inc., was chartered by the State of North Carolina to facili- 
tate the expansion of Church Extension within the bounds of the Conference. 

The Board of Missions, Incorporated, has $794,283.54 in a revolving fund for the 
purpose of helping those churches which cannot secure local loans and to help churches 
to secure construction loans until their money from the General Board becomes avail- 
able. We are finding it more difficult for churches to borrow money since the interest 
rate has been raised. Last year a total of fifteen churches received loans from our re- 



Journal of Proceedings 279 

volving fund and a total of six chvirches received construction loans. This revolving fund 
has been of crucial importance for many of our small churches. 

During the past year your Board of Missions has secured one site for a churcih, 
which is located in the new development created by Weyerhaeuser Corporation in 
Jacksonville, North Carolina. 

Ten Dollar Club 

Since March, 1954, we have helped to build 71 new churches through the Ten Dol- 
lar Club. There are today 18 ohurohes waiting to receive help from the Ten Dollar Club. 
We have paid through the Ten Dollar Club the total amount of $1,045,539.51. These 
71 churches today are valued at $6,317,309.00. We desperately need new members for 
the Ten DoUar Club, if we are to keep the pace with th population growth in our Con- 
ference. Since our last report, we have helped the following churches to build their first 
units :■ 

July, 1967— Call no. 41— St. Andrews Methodist Church, Raleigh $17,000.00 

Nov., 1967— Call No. 42 — St. Luke Methodist Church, Laurinburg 17,000.00 
March, 1968, Call No. 43— Westview Methodist Churcih, 

Harrells Charge, Wihnington District 17,000.00 



Total $51,000.00 

On September 15 of each year the Ten Dollar Club Committee meets to approve 
churches to be helped by the Ten Dollar Club aid for the ensuing year. Church Exten- 
sion Simday will be held February 16, 1969. Our goal is at least one new member per 
church throughout the Conference. 

Aid to Churches 

The Board has endeavored to help churches through construction loans, through 
;?rants, and has assisted them in securing aid from the Rural Fund of the Duke Endow- 
nent. When a church loan becomes $20,000.00 or more, we help to secure the loan 
'"rom the National Division of the Board of Missions. We have helped churches secure 
'cans in building parsonages and through our grant and aid program have made outright 
'?ifts to many of these churches. 

Parsonage aid in the form of rental allowance cannot be given for longer than five 
i/ears, and this must be reduced on a graduated scale. In cooperation with the Comnris- 
;ion on Tovra and Coimtry Work and the Woman's Society of Christian Service a 
)rochure entitled "A Guide for Building, Furnishing, and Maintaining Parsonages" has 
)een compiled for the convenience of those interested in building parsonages. Free copies 
>f this may be secured from 1307 Glenwood Avenue, Raleigh, North Carolina 27605. 

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 
Urban Life 

During the 1967-1968 conference year, the Urban Life Cormnittee held a two-day 
onference on "North Carolina's Newest Frontier." The purpose of the conference was 
-) bring those in attendance to an understanding of North CaroHna's rapid urbanization, 
t was a pilot project, and a very rewarding one. One of the real emphases within the 
ew quadrennium must be in the urban work field. We recommend that this committee 
e continued. 

Committee on Mission Studies and Cultivation 

The aim of this committee is to provide local churches across the conference with 
laterials to involve their congregations in meaningful mission study. The Conference 
chool of Mission is our chief instnunent and last fall a total of 529 persons attended 
'eekend and weekday sessions of the school. Plans were formulated for Mission Study 
onferences in each district and 1,324 attended these sessions. We hope for broad re- 
x)nse in local churches. This year's studies have included Ecumenism, Christ and the 
aiths of Men, Japan, and Man and Community. 

The Conference School of Christian Mission will be held this year at Methodist Col- 
ge, August 3-8. The weekend school will be August 3-4; the week of study, August 4- 
Themes for this year are New Forms of Mis-^n, Southeast Asia, and the Gospel of 
imn. Registration is open to any interested person. 



280 North Carolina Annual Conference 

RECOMMENDATIONS AND REQUESTS 
World Missions 

If the churdh is to fulfill its purpose in the world, it must be very sensitive to the 
calls for help that come to it from all places in the world. How desperate and how piti- 
ful are the calls that come to the church from all areas of our world todayl God's people 
are sick, hungry, cold, aixl ignorant; they are oppressed, persecuted, frightened, and 
hopeless. To help meet the cries of these people, your North Carohna Conference Board 
of Missions pleads witli the churches in our Conference to respond to the cries for help 
through ovu- Advance Special program, by assuming projects in each of the areas of 
outreach: World Missions, National Missions, Methodist Committee on Overseas Re- 
lief, and Conference Si)ecials. This is one way in which we can "declare the wonderful 
deeds of Him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light." 

Duke P<istors' School 

The Board of Missions submits the following as members of the Duke Pastors' 
School Board of Managers. The terms of those elected are to expire on the dates listed 
immediately following their names. Dr. James I. Warren, 1970; Rev. J. H. Miller, Jr., 
1970; Rev. E. C. Shoaf, 1972; Rev. A. F. Fisher, 1972; Rev. L. C. Vereen, 1974; Rev. ■ 
F. O. Fitzgerald, Jr., 1974. 

District Missionary Secretaries 

We express our abiding gratitude to the District Secretaries for the support given 
in leading our local churches to a larger vision of the world-wide mission of the church. ' 
They have given time, energy, and leaders'hip in the total program of the Conference, 
Board. In order that our District Missionary Secretaries may be better informed, it is 
the plan of the North Carohna Conference Board to send the District Missionary Secre- 
taries to oiu- New York offices during the 1968-1969 conference year where they may 
meet the staff members of the General Board of Missions, and learn first-hand what the 
church is doing. It is the feeling of the Board that this experience will be more valuable 
than any other training we could offer them. 

Executive Secretary 

We recognize and do express our gratitude to the Reverend Mr. L. C. Vereen, execu- 
tive secretary of the Board of Missions, for his enthusiastic and efficient execution of the 
total program of the Board. Mr. Vereen has maintained the high quaUty of leadership 
which the Board of Missions has had in its executive secretaries. We recommend his 
reappointment as secretary of the North Carohna Conference Board of Missions and 
Church Extension for the ensuing year.

REPORT OF NORTH CAROLINA PASTORS' SCHOOL 

The annual North Carolina Pastors' School and Convocation was conducted at Duke 
University, October 30-November 1, 1967. 

Bishop Paul Hardin, Jr., was the speaker at the opening session of the School whej 
he presented the message at The Bishop's Horn-. Bishop James K. Matthews was the 
Gray Lecturer and Dr. David H. C. Read was the Convocation Preacher. The Pastor's 
School Lecturer was Dr. Hans J. Hilderbrand and Dr. E. E. Wiley, Jr., was the Alumni 
Lecturer. Bishop Earl Hunt, Jr., was the speaker at the Alumni Luncheon. The Intro- 
ductory Seminars were led by Dr. Charles K. Robinson, Dr. Harmon Smith, Dr. Delford 
Stickel and Dr. Donald WiUiamson. 

Several members of the Divinity School Faculty gave substantial leadership in the 
entire program as did the Divinity School Choir in providing special music for the 
Chapel services. Ministers from the North Carolina, North Carolina-Virginia and 
Western North Carolina Conferences contributed in several parts of the program. 

The Board of Managers of the School has given consideration to plans by which 
it is hoped the program may be made more attractive in 1968 than has been the case 
before. These changes will be announced along with other details of the program in 



Journal of Proceedings 281 

the early fall of 1968. The Pastors' School and Ck)nvocation is scheduled for October 
28-30, 1968. 

Appreciation is expressed to agencies of the North Carolina and Western North 
'Carolina Conferences which out of interest in the total program make financial con- 
tributions annually to its continuance.

SECTION E 

The Minister and Social Security 

1. The Social Security Law was amended in 1967 regarding the coverage fori 
ministers. We quote the amendment: 

"IF YOU ARE A CLERGYMAN WHO DID NOT ELECT SOCIAL SECURITY 
COVERAGE UNDER THE OLD LAW, YOUR INCOME FROM THE MINISTRY 
WILL NOW BE COVERED UNLESS YOU APPLY FOR EXEMPTION AND STATEI 
THAT YOU ARE OPPOSED TO COVERAGE BY REASON OF RELIGIOUS PRIN-1 
CIPLES OR CONSCIENCE. 

Until the 1967 change in the law, income from the ministry was not covered by 
social security unless the clergyman signed a form stating that he wanted it to be 
covered. Clergyman who elected coverage under the earlier law will not be afiFected 
by the new provisions. They will continue to be covered. 

For taxable years ending after December 1967, income from the ministry will auto- 
matically be covered unless the clergyman files an application for exemption, stating that 
he is opposed to receiving social security benefits (or other public insurance), based 
on services as a clergyman, by reason of religious principles or conscience. 

As under the old law, a clergyman reports his income and makes his tax contribu- 
tions as if he were self-employed, even though he may be working as an employee. 

A clergyman who wishes to be exempted may complete Form 4361 and file it with 
the Internal Revenue Service. This form may be secured at any office of the Social 
Security Administration or of the Internal Revenue Service. 

In general, a clergyman who entered the ministry in 1968 or earlier has until 
April 15, 1970 to file the form. 

The new provision does not afFect members of religious orders who have taken a 
vow of poverty. As before, they are not covered by social security." From S. S. I. 
Pamphlet No. 1967-1. 

2. The General Board of Pensions has issued the following statement regarding the 
new amendments to the Social Security laws: 

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF NEW SOCIAL SECURITY COVERAGE 
PROVISIONS WITH RESPECT TO MINISTERS 

The Social Security Amendments of 1967 significantly changed the coverage pro- 
visions of the Social Security program (Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance 
and Hospital Insurance) as they relate to ministers: In brief, the situation is completely 
reversed. Under previous law, each minister had the right to elect individually (on 
irrevocable basis, within a certain prescribed time) whether he wanted to be covered, 
whereas now all ministers are compulsorily covered unless they irrevocably elect wi ' ' 
a certain period to be exempted on grounds of conscientious opposition or religio 
principles (i.e.: objection to any public insurance that provides benefits, such as thoi 
of the Social Security program ) . The term "minister" is used to include also missionariei 
and members of religious orders (other than those who have taken a vow of poverty) 
As before, coverage is on the self-employment basis. 

Under the new basis, compulsory coverage begins with 1968. In order to obtain; 
exemption, the minister must file an application therefor by April 15, 1970 (except that 
those who do not have net earnings from self-employment income, including some from 
the ministry, in both 1968 and 1969 do not have to file for exemption until April iSthi 
following the second year after 1967 in which they have such earnings — primarily 
applicable to ministers ordained in the future. Quite naturally, any minister who hadi 
filed a waiver so as to obtain coverage under the provisions of previous law is noti 
allowed to file an exemption because, obviously, he had not been opposed to public| 
insurance. ! 

Let us consider specifically how this provision operates for present ministers whoj 
are not covered under Social Secm-ity (since they did not previously file a waiver). Ifi 



Journal of Proceedings 285 

such an individual does not file an exemption by April 15, 1970, he will be liable for 
the self-employment tax for both 1968 and 1969 and for all future years. Even if he 
files the exemption after April 15, 1969, he will not have to pay the 1968 tax which he 
would have to otherwise declare on his 1968 income tax return that he had filed by 
April 15, 1969 (or he could get it refunded if he had paid it). A minister who pres- 
ently is stiU eligible to file a waiver imder the conditions of the previous law ( essential- 
ly, only recently ordained ministers) can still do so and obtain the resulting coverage 
for years before 1968. 

The important change brought about by this amendment is that now ministers 
can opt out of the Social Security system only on grounds of religious convictions or 
religious principles — and not on personal, political, or economic grounds. This seems 
equitable in relation to the situation for laymen who cannot opt out of the program 
for the latter reasons; and, therefore, it follows out more closely the original intent to 
exempt ministers only when the "separation of Chvu-ch and State" principle is thought 
to be involved. 

EXCERPT FROM: "Social Security — Developments of the Year" 
By Robert J. Myers, Chief Actuary, Social Security Administration 

SECTION F 
Insurance 

1. Hospital Insurance: We recommend that the Board of Pensions continue to 
provide hospital insurance to our claimants. The policy for those claimants over 65 

' provides supplementary coverage with Medicare. We are pleased to announce that the 
' rates have been reduced from $6.50 per claimant each month to $5.50 per claimant 
■ each month. For those claimants under 65 the Board of Pensions has provided insurance 
coverage comparable to the policy enforced by Blue Cross for our effective ministers. 
Our Board has studied the protection offered under the present plan of $15.00 room 
allowance, and we feel that this is inadequate with the continuing increased cost of 
medical treatment. Therefore, we recommend that for those claimants under 65 the 
' coverage be increased to $25.00 per day room allowance, and medical payments on 
the basis of $12.00 the first day, $8.00 the second day, and $4.00 thereafter. 

2. Group Term Life Insurance: The Group Term Life Insurance program offered 
last Annual Conference received a favorable response when offered to the Quarterly 
Conferences by the district superintendents. Throughout the Conference there were 
57 men serving appointments who were not eligible; 31 ministers rejected the insurance 

I and signed waivers to that effect; 460 are enrolled (which is 93.7 per cent). The in- 
surance went into effect January 1, 1968. We recommend that the Group Term Lffe 
Insurance program be continued. We recommend that under the Single Figure Appor- 

.tionment, an amount of $85.68 be added to each charge Single Figure Apportionment 
for premiums for Group Term Lffe Insurance. We are sorry to report that one claim 
for a dependent child for $100.00 has been paid thus far. 

SECTION G 

Adjusted Records for Annxtity Credit 

We recommend that the following persons' pensions be adjusted so as to give 
pension credit for the service indicated: 

Henry A. Bizzell, Jr.: three fourths year Approved Supply Service 1948-1949 

Robert F. McKee: pension credit for service while teacldng at Louisburg College 
1952-1953 

Albert F. Fisher: one half year Approved Supply Service 1954 

James E. Smith: three years Approved Supply Service 1957-1960 

Norwood L. Jones: one year service 1950 

John M. Cline: one half year Approved Supply Credit 1946 

Wesley G. Brogan: was appointed "Student" at last Conference. Therefore, he 
is to receive pension credit without the Board of Education making payment of $768.00 
As payment was made, The Board will make the refund. 

We recommend that Carl Calloway be given one half year credit for the Conference 
year 1967-1968, since his ministry in this conference was discontinued in January, 1968. 
J We recommend that J. B. Eskridge not be given credit for 1967-1968 for his 
appointment "Student" as he was not enrolled in school. 



286 North Carolina Annual Conference 

We recommend that D. D. Holt be given four years credit for the service he gave 
while serving as Executive Director of the Methodist College Foundation of North 
Carolina, 1951-1955. 

We recommend J. W. Scott be given one half year credit for 1967-1968 as he le 
served in a capacity "without annuity credit upon the Conference" for part of the 
year. 

We recommend that William A. Ruth be given pension credit for 1967-1968, as 
he was under episcopal appointment in this Conference. This corrects the Board of 
Pension report in the Journal which recommends he be appointed without aimuity 
claim upon the Conference. 

We recommend that the pension claim of Mrs. Gordon Casey, widow of Rev. H. H. 
Chester, be reinstated, she, having reached the age of 65 (see paragraph 1620.3 of the 
1964 Discipline. ) Claim is to be based on 27^2 years of service. 

We recommend Mrs. Hugh W. Prince, widow of the late Rev. O. W. Dowd, be 
reinstated for pension, with payment to be made on rate of 26.50 years of service. 

SECTION H 
General Recommendations 

1. Average salary for Conference, 1966-1967: We report that the average salary 
for last year, as computed by the General Board of Pensions: $5,517.00. 

2. We recommend that the expenses of the members of the Board of Pensions, 
the secretaries' expenses, and secretaries' honorarium of $900.00 be paid from ciurrent -^ 
operating funds. 

3. We recommend that those persons under episcopal appointment. Student, furnish 
a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Pensions, a statement of proof i\ 
of enrollment before pension credit is approved. 

4. We recommend that a Workshop for all claimants be held at the Methodist 
Building, Jime 21st, at 10:00 o'clock. At this time representatives from Blue Cross- 
Blue Shield, the Internal Revenue Service, State Revenue Service, and the Board of 
Pensions will be present to give information and to answer questions. 

5. We recommend that Bishop Garber appoint as Ex OflBcio members to the Board 
of Pensions a cabinet representative. 

6. We recommend that the Board of Hospitals and Homes elect a representative 
from that board to be an Ex Officio member of the Board of Pensions. 

7. We recommend that a representative of the Board of Pensions become an Ex 
Officio member of the Board of Hospitals and Homes. 

8. We recommend that Bishop Garber continue the committee appointed to study 
the Minister's Reserve Pension Plan. A. C. Edwards representing World Service and 
Finance Commission died before this committee's work was completed. We share with 
the entire Conference his loss. We request Bishop Garber to appoint a lay member from 
the Commission on World Service and Finance to complete the full committee. 

9. With the plan of rotation of members which is in eflFect for the Board of Pen- 
sions, several of our members will terminate their service with this Board at this 
Conference. We of the Board of Pensions take this privilege to express - our sincere 
appreciation for the loyal support, dedicated interest, and wise counsel we have re- 
ceived from the following members: Dr. L. Stacy Weaver, Seth B. HoUowell, Rev. A. L. 
Thompson, Willis Smith, Jr., Rev. John R. Poe, Claude G. Sommers, Rev. A. W. Lore, 
and Rev. L. A. Tilley.

REPORT OF THE COMMISSION ON 
PROMOTION AND CULTIVATION 

With the closing of this quadrennium the Commission on Promotion and Cultiva- 

on of the Methodist Church brings to a cuhiiination the "One Witness In One World." 

''he very unification of the Evangelical United Brethren Church and The Methodist 

;hurch serves as an additional remainder of our purpose in One Witness of Jesus Christ 

pr the world. 

THE PAST YEAR 

1. We commend Bishop Paul Neif Garber and the District Superintendents for their 
fcemplary leadership in giving stress to the Neighborhood-One Program. The rewards 
■e far greater than can be measured in any given statistic. Through the willingness and 
evotion of lay members of our church the smaller churches became stronger with the 
lared experiences and leadership of N-1 members. 

2. The Commission on Promotion and Cultivation joined with the Conference Board 
: Lay Activities to sponsor the Conference-Wide Stewardship Rally in the Raleigh 
lemorial Auditorium on November 6, 1967. The theme of the conference was "We 
Witness Through Stewardship." Addresses by Dr. G. Don Gilmore, Bobby Richardson, 
r. James Roy Smith, R. R. Allen and Walter Anderson plus the combined choirs of 
1 our Methodist Colleges in the North Carolina Conference stirred the audience to 

deeper understanding of Christian Stewardship. The more than two thousand in 
;tendance were challenged and accepted a stronger belief in the Stewardship of the 
,aity. Because of this Rally laymen and clergy returned to their local churches to pre- 
■nt a stronger witness and dedication to a more adequate stewardship through the local 
lurch. Evidence of this effort is being felt in World Service, Missions and Pastor's 
ilary increases for next year. 

THE FUTURE IS UPON US 

Unless the Church is present as an agent of constructive change in this age of 
lange we are overlooking a vital mission that lies on everyone's doorstep. One such 
fort to answer our age of change is the Methodist United Service Training ( MUST II ) . 
he initiative came from the National Division of the Methodist Board of Missions, 
hich continues to have administrative responsibihty and administers Advance Special 
inds given for projects within MUST II. 

The theory behind MUST II is based on a philosophy tested in New York City 
MUST I — Metropolitan Service Training Project). It is two-fold: 

1. The most eflFective way to secure change in both clergy and laity is to work vdth 
em in the development of resources they already have in them and adjacent to them. 

2. The most effective way for renewal in the church is through the creation of 
ass roots, regional training processes and the development of frameworks to allow 
r cooperative action. 

In other words, MUST II believes that problem solving is done right where the 
oblem is. We best learn in the street, the neighborhood, precinct, or tovra where the 
lallenge exists. The best teachers are often people in need. The location for training is 
the local church. 

Work is already under way in many areas, awaiting funds for expansion. Other 
ograms await initial funding. Every individual, church, district and annual conference 
n play a part by supporting MUST II projects with Advance Specials. For additional 
formation on the immediate needs of MUST II, vvTite to the Advance Department, 
)ard of Missions of the United Methodist Church, 465 Riverside Drive, New York, 
ew York 10027. An illustrated brochure, entitled "MUST II" is free for the asking 
Dm Service Center, Board of Missions of the United Methodist Church, 7820 Reading 
3ad, Cincinnati, Ohio 45237. 

Again, we commend to your use the filmstrips, "David's World," and "Bridges," 
.d the color film "And On The Eighth Day" from the TRAFCO library. Additional and 
ore current films and filmstrips will be listed with the TRAFCO office in the Methodist 
lilding in Raleigh.

302 North Carolina Annual Conference 

REPORT OF THE METHODIST BOARD OF PUBLICATION, INC. 

The main job of this board is to pubUsh the North Carolina Christian Advocate ? 
Founded over a hundred years ago, it has today an increasingly urgent mandate to W "' 
an effective and eloquent voice in lifting up Christ and in challenging the Methodisi 
people of this state to renew^al in faith and in works. We are therefore concerned tha 
all necessary steps be taken to enhance its eflFectiveness and to broaden the scope of iti 
influence. a-. 

Basic to our operation over the years has been the print shop, which has producec* ^' 
the Advocate and has done a substantial amount of printing — mainly church-relatec 
— under the trade name of The Piedmont Press. Without the income derived from thi 
facility the Advocate would not have been able to operate over the years withou 
continuous additional financial support. We therefore believe that the operation of thiil" 
job printing department should be continued. 

However, it is essential that our obsolescent equipment be replaced with moden)- 
efficient machinery. The financial loss due to this factor becomes more serious ever): 
year. It is the conviction of your board that our equipment should be up-dated imi 
mediately. Therefore, we have petitioned the two sponsoring conferences for an armua 
subsidy to be used to purchase this much-needed equipment. 

The major item of equipment needed is a new modem press. We are proposing 
to make radical changes in the format and content of the North Carolina Christiar. 
Advocate. These changes cannot be carried out economically with our present equip 1 
ment. We anticipate the use of color, and greater use of line drawings, photographs] 
and other techniques of the graphic arts. In other words, it is our purpose to give thi ji 
Advocate a completely new look, and to bring it into the forefront of our rapidlj ^ 
changing times. 

In conjimction with this, we propose in the coming conference year to launch at 
aggressive, imaginative campaign to sharply increase our circulation. We hereb) 
request the approval and support of the annual conference for such a campaign, anc t 
solicit the fullest cooperation from our pastors and churches. 

The installation of new equipment will greatly enhance the capability of Th^ 
Piedmont Press. We urge the increased patronage of our press by churches, conferen 
boards, colleges and other institutions. With added versatility we plan to offer continu< 
high quality work at competitive prices. Also, we would stress the fact that all profiti 
from the operation of The Piedmont Press are invested in the production of a betteij |3 
North Carolina Christian Advocate. 

We recommend that a specific campaign for the promotion of the North Carolitu 
Christian Advocate he carried out in every church, either in a cooperative plan with thi u 
Committee on Publishing Interests or otherwise as may be set up by the Methodisi ii, 
Board of Publication. 

In regard to all of the recommendations made above, we ask that in approving! 
this report, the conference thereby adopt them as a part of the program of the confer-".^ 
ence.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON PURLISHING INTERESTS 

The impending union of the Methodist Church and The Evangelical United Brethren 
hurch, and the subsequent joining of the general publishing interest of the two church- 
1^ will bring our Methodist Publishing House to the threshold of a new day of increased 
jrvice to the eleven milhon United Methodists. For Publishing House administrators, 
16 year was one of planning and preparation to put the House in the best possible 
osition to carry forward its resi>onsibihties in the new church. 

The accomplishments of our Publishing House during the past year are not paralleled 
I any other year in Methodist PubUshing House history, even though comparisons with 
ther years be on percentage bases. The year's financial success has opened the way for 
eeded expansion of the business to include the opening of new Cokesbtuy stores in 
?atde, Washington (November 6, 1967) and Birmingham, Alabama (November 30, 
967). 

In consideration of the year's success and prospects for the future, the Board of Pub- 
rations increased the annual appropriation to the Conference Claimants to $800,000. 
f this amount, the North Carolina Conference receives $10,571.37. 

The church's reception of the new Methodist Hymnal, pubhshed in July 1966, has 
iceeded all expectations. As this rejwrt is written, more than 3,300,000 copies of the 
ymnal have been ordered and delivered. 

Changes in hthographic and bindery equipment, required to produce the new 
ymnal, have placed the Publishing House in a position to produce larger quantities of 
-inting and to render better service than ever before. 

The new and quite difi^erent adult hterature, "Man's Search for a Meaningful Faith," 
as ready for fall, 1967, distribution. Plans for new youth materials in 1968 were con- 
uded. Plans for additional adult materials in 1969 were crystahzed and feasibility 
lecks are now being made. 

During the year, circulation of Together, the general periodical for Methodist fami- 
;s, decreased from 636,893 to 589,914. Significant circulation increases were realized 
several annual conferences and episcopal areas, however, as a result of special sub- 
ription campaigns. 

Other highlights of the year's activity include the following: 

—Total distribution of Abingdon Weekly Church Bulletins— 85,734,800 
— Re-establishment of the Abingdon Award, designed to encourage creative au- 
orship of books of outstanding quality for possible publication by Abingdon Press. 

— Pubhcation of 108 new titles by Abingdon Press. Thirteen of these titles were 
)ok Club Guild selections. 

— Largest distribution of trade books in the history of the House. 
— Armed Forces Unified Curriculum materials experienced an all-time hig'h aver- 
;e circulation of 570,000 units per quarter. 
. The FoLLoviaNG is our Plan of Actton for Next Year: 

A. The Committee on Publishing Interests proposes to the Annual Conference that 
ere be a representative of the committee in each local church. This i>erson is to be 



304 North Carolina Annual Conference 

known as The Church PubUcation Representative, and is to be elected by the Quarterli 
Conference ( charge conference ) . 

This is an important office and we recommend that due and careful consideration ex 
given in the selection and nomination of this individual by the nomination committet 
in each local church. Further, we recommend that this individual be elected for a two- 
year term with the understanding he may succeed himself. This representative wdll bf 
an at large member of the Administrative Board, A Hst of these stewards vdll be sent tc 
the North Carolina Christian Advocate, Togetlier, the Library Division at Nashville, anc 
to Mr. A. R. White in the Cokesbury Book Store in Richmond, Virginia. This Hst will he i 
sent by the district superintendent after the Fourth Quarterly Conference (charge coni 
ference). 

We further recommend that the duties of the District Secretary of Publishing Inter 
ests be expanded to include promotion of the North Carolina Christian Advocate through 
the Local Ohm-ch Pubhcations Steward and for his title to read: District Secretary oj 
Pubhshing Interests (including die North Carolina Christian Advocate). This has becK 
done after conversation with the editor of the Advocate, Dr. James C. Stokes, and vfM 
his approval. If approved, this would eliminate the office of district director of the North 
Carolina Christian Advocate. We feel the merit in such a proiwsal is to fvurther consoliJ|« 
date the work of the church to eliminate duplication. 

B. The Duties of tlie At Large Member Are: 1 
— To promote and secure subscriptions to our churdh papers, periodicals and books. 
— To make reports to the Administrative Board and recommend ways to promot; 

pubhcations in the local chiuidh. 

— To keep an accurate record (up to date) hst of subscribers to chiu^oh papers anc 
periodicals. 

— To serve as a resource person in the local church for audio-visual aids. 

— To serve as chairman of the Publications Committee where such committee exist; 
in the local ohiuch. 

— To report his work in the local chvuch to the District Secretary of Pubhshing Inter 
ests (including the North Carolina Christian Advocate). 

— To promote Ubraries in the local church. 

— To inteUigently represent the work and interests of the Publishing Interests Com 
mittee. 

— To serve as chairman of the Good Literature Committee where said committee i; 
organized in the local church. 

C. We fiuiher recommend that our Annual Conference take advantage of the offei 
of the Methodist Publishing House to provide bulletin inserts periodically, which woulc 
promote the "buying of books" by individuals. Each pastor would be responsible foi 
requesting this service, once it is approved by the Annual Conference.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON SUSTENTATION FUND 
Ministers' EMERGENCY Aid Fund 

,, 1. The Sustentation Fund is to be used for emergency relief in the form of grants to 
ffective ministers and approved supply pastors serving appointments whose salary is 
•aid by the local church or conference treasurer, and who become disabled to the extent 
hat they are unable to continue their work, and whose income is not adequate to meet 
mergency needs. 

2. Emergency appropriations shall be used to bring the disabled minister's income 
.p to a maximum of $4,200 per conference year. If the applicant receives other per- 



306 North Carolina Annual Conference 

sonal income in excess of $4,200 such additional income shall be deducted from the 
emergency grant. In no event shall the emergency funds be used to supplement an ap- 
plicant's income of $4,200 or above. 

3. Payment of this $4,200 will be made on the basis of $350 per month. Payments 
will be made only during those months the applicant quahfies for Emergency Relief 
Funds. No funds will be appropriated without three-fourths approval of the Sustenta- 
tion Fimd Committee. 

4. The Sustentation Fund Committee secretary must place all necessary forms in 
the hands of the Cabinet members at the beginning of each conference year. 

5. In all cases the appUcation forms — district superintendent, the doctor, and the 
applicant — shall be completed and forwarded to the chairman of the committee before 
approval of funds will be made except in those special cases as defined in paragraph 6. 
Any minister expecting to receive Emergency Relief Funds at the beginning of the con- 
ference year should make application not later than two weeks before the annual con- 
ference convene. 

6. In cases where application for Emergency Funds occurs during the session of the 
annual conference, the apphcant's district superintendent, and the appHcant, when 
possible, shall present an oral application to a joint meeting of the Cabinet and at least I 
three members of the Sustentation Fund Committee. At this time appropriate action will 
be taken in keeping with the best interest of the applicant and in the spirit of the Emer- 
gency Rehef Fund. The written forms must be completed and placed with the cx)m- ■ 
mittee wdthin thirty days of this meeting. 

7. Funds will be made payable within thirty days following committee approval, 

8. All cases shall be reviewed at the middle of the conference year to determine : 
progress in each case. It shall be the responsibihty of each applicant's district superin- 
tendent to see that the progress reports — statements from the doctor and the district su- 
perintendent — are completed and placed with the committee. Should this review of the 
apphcant's disability reveal that he is capable of resuming work, it shall be the respon- 
sibihty of the Sustentation Fund Committee to bring this information to the attention 
of the Cabinet. 

9. Should the disability continue beyond one year, we call attention to the fact 
that the Board of Pensions makes Medical DisabiUty payments based on a man's service 
years. We also call attention to the fact that it is possible that in some cases retirement 
may offer specific advantages over Emergency Relief Fund aid. 

10. We recommend that the Ministers' Emergency Relief Fund be continued as an 
apypropriaion equal to one per cent of the pastor's salary in connection wdth the Minis- 
ters' Retirement Fund. Travel and utility allowances are to be included in the salary 
apportionment. 

11. We recommend that expenses of travel, telephone, postage, etc., for the com- 
mittee be paid from the Emergency Relief Fund.

Harvey B. Johnson, Secretary 

REPORT OF THE TELEVISION, RADIO AND FILM COMMISSION 

The work of the Television, Radio and Film Commission is the business of com- 
municating the Gospel. In light of this fact, your commission has sought to help the 
churches of ovu: Conference keep abreast of all communication media that we together 
might better communicate the wondrous message of Jesus and His love. 

TRAFCO is happy to render continuous service to the Conference through the 
Walton Memorial Audio-Visual Library. The Library is located in The Methodist 
Building, Room 215, 1307 Glenwood Avenue, Raleigh, N. C. Mrs. Robert Garrison, 
Librarian, is giving outstanding service and is always glad to assist in selecting appropri- 
ate films and filmstrips for use in the various programs of ovir churches. The new edition 
of the Audio-Visual Catalog has been completed and copies are available by writing to 
Mrs. Garrison at the above address. The catalog will be up-dated each year through 
supplements that can easily be inserted in the catalog. We continue to cooperate with 
all the Boards and Agencies of the Conference in ptuchasing for the library new films 
and filmstrips, as they are produced, for promoting the work of the church. Many of 
these agencies buy films and put them in the library for distribution. ! 

Due to increased postal rates, the following changes in rental rates wiU go intoj 
effect July 1, 1968: (1) Filmstrips with record from $1.00 to $1.25; (2) Fihnstrips 



Journal of Proceedings 307 

without record from $.50 to $.75; (3) Record Albums from $.75 to $1.00; (4) 16mm 
films will be evaluated by the executive committee as to cost of rental based upon 
demand and length of film. By action of the Commission, unpaid rental fees will be 
handled in this manner: "TRAFCO cannot service requests for films where the account 
is delinquent 30 days after receiving request for payment." 

General TRAFCO has produced a new children's television series called WONDER 
WINDOW. This series is now being carried on WTVD — Durham and WWAY — 
Wilmington. 

AMERICAN PROFILE, another production of General TRAFCO, is a new idea in 
positive radio programming. It is designed to help contradict all the "bad news" that 
pours out to radio listeners each day. It is the story of people making a different kind 
of news — news of constructive action. Ordinary people tell their stories to host Bob 
Johnson. They are people involved — doing down to earth things — making a difference 
in the lives of others. AMERICAN PROFILE is broadcast five times a week on WBBB 
— Burlington, WCNS — Elizabeth City, WFVG — Fuquay Varina, WWGP — San- 
ford, WVCB — Shallotte, WENC — Whiteville and WOAM — Williamston. 

Next Conference Year, the TRAFCO-TV Ministry Fund goes into the "single 
figure" asking. Your support of the "single figure" item in your local budget helps us 
continue to offer our services to your churches. 

J. K. BosTiCK, Chairman 
Odell Walker, Secretary 

REPORT NO. 2 

It is with a great deal of appreciation that we, the members of the North Carolina 
Conference Television, Radio and Film Commission, on March 25, 1968, recognize the 
' great contribution of our Quadrennial Chairman, The Reverend Joseph K. Bostick. As 
• we join together in probably the final meeting of the Quadrennium, we express our 
I deepest thanks for his leadership and competence in an executive capacity. We also 
clearly note that he has never separated the technical and business phases of the work 
of TRAFCO from its reason for being, that is, using all media available to share the 
gospel of Jesus Christ with the world. 

Joe Bostick completes this year, not only four years as Chairman of TRAFCO, but 
eight years of service on the Commission. It would be impossible to enumerate all of 
the contributions and achievements for which he has been responsible. It is without 
question that his greatest single achievement has been over the entire eight years of 
unselfish service, to set a real tone and attitude of a servant to the conference, and to 
foster a new and vital image of the work of Conference TRAFCO. 

He has worked closely with and survived two Library catalogues and one supple- 
jment. It is true that only he, his family and church members, know how many hours 
:have gone into the superb 1968 edition. 

The growth and development of TRAFCO into a full-time service agency was his 
dream, and he was instrumental in promoting the idea and then having the faith that 
it would be successful. Only Joe realizes how much of a venture of faith it was on 
occasion, especially on each trip to World Service Commission in December. 

He has himself gone, and made sure others on the commission participated in audio- 
visual training conferences and communications seminars on a jurisdictional and national 
level. He has led us to participate in each adventure and program that General TRAFCO 
has presented. 

These are only a few of the many accomplishments for which we honor him this 
day. A small gift is not adequate to express our fullest appreciation. Best of all, to each 
oi us on the commission, he's still "just Joe!" We thank you and we salute you. 

Ed Osteen for The Commission 

REPORT OF COMMISSION ON TOWN AND COUNTRY WORK 

Report No. 1 

The 1964-1968 quadrennium of work in the North CaroUna Annual Conference of 
The Methodist Church is now history. Many significant accomplishments have been 
nade by the annual conference during this period. The Commision on Town and Coun- 
ry Work has been involved in causing many of these achievements to be realized. 

( 1 ) The minimum salary for the ministers in the North Carohna Annual Conference 
las been increased from $4200.00 to $5000.00 paid during the current year. The Com- 



808 North Carolina Annual Conference 

mission on Town and Country Work recommends that the minimum salary for the min- 
isters in the North Carolina Annual Conference be set at $6,000.00 for the man in the 
maximum support category by or before the 1971-1972 conference year. To reahze this 
goal, the Commission on Town and Country Work knows that many charges with an in- 
adequate base of support will be challenged to strengthen their commitment by increased 
stewardship and by uniting with other churches through the realignment of charge 
boundaries. To have an adequate ministry for the church in the town and country areas, 
the chvuches and the annual conference must provide adequate support. 

(2) The Commission on Town and Country Work rejoices in the fact that so many 
of the churches with smaller memberships are strengthening their programs through 
new forms of ministry and cooperation. The Commission would challenge all churches 
with smaller membership to look for new ways to minister to the total community with 
a total witness for Christ. Much can be accomphshed through cooperation — among min- 
isters and churches. 

(3) The Rural Church of the Year recognition program has been initiated and the 
first award will be made at the 1968 session of the annual conference. This program 
is designed to encourage each local church in the rural areas ( population less than 2500 ) 
to improve its ministry to the community and its participation in the total program of 
The Methodist Church on all levels. 

(4) The Commission on Town and Country Work is pleased to have had a part 
(through the participation of its chairman) in the development of the Inter-Board 
Coordinating Council in the North Carolina Annual Conference. The Commission feels 
that this is a step in the direction of more unified planning and execution of the total 
administration of the annual conference program. 

(5) The Commission on Town and Country Work welcomes the new ministers and 
the new town and country churches that become a part of the North Carohna Annual 
Conference as a result of the merger with the North Carolina-Virginia Conference of the 
Central Jurisdiction. The Commission pledges its support to these ministers and laymen 
and looks to them for added strength and guidance. 

(6) The Commission on Town and Country Work washes to express its appreciation 
to Bishop Paul Neff Garber for his inspirational leadership and vdse counsel for the past 
17 years. Also, appreciation is expressed to Mr. Roy L. Turnage, Jr. for his dedicated 
service to the Commission during the past 12 years in the capacity of promotional sec- 
retary. 

It is the dream and prayer of the Commission on Town and Country Work that the 
total ministry of Christ be realized in increasing effectiveness to aU of the people in the 
town and cormtry areas of eastern North Carolina throug'h the witness of the North 
Carohna Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church.

Charles E. Owens, Secretary

REPORT OF THE PROMOTIONAL SECRETARY 

Once every four years tlie activities of the Commission on Town and Country Work 
embraces all levels of the church's program, from the general to the local church level. 

Eighteen delegates from the North Carohna Conference attended the National Con- 
sultation on the Church in Community Life held at Ohio State University in Columbus, 
Ohio, September 5-8, 1967. The first ecumenical consultation of its kind brought to- 
gether over 2,500 clergy and lay leaders, representing all major denominations, from 
the non-metropolitan areas of the United States. 

On October 23-26, 1967, Town and Country leaders throughout the jurisdiction 
gathered for the annual meeting of the Fellowship of Town and Country Workers in the 
Southeast held at the Hinton Rural Life Center located near Hayesville. The commis- 
sion was represented by six of its members, including the chairman, three district secre- 
taries, and two church and community workers. 

The 1968 Seminar on Church and Community was held February 19-20 in the Er- 
dahl-Cloyd Building on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh. "The 
Church Confronts — Urbanization, Technology, and Secularization" was selected as the' 
theme. Ten persons from our conference connection attended the seminar. The annual, 
meeting is sponsored by the N. C. Council of Churches and N. C. State University in 
cooperation with the various supporting church bodies. I 



Journal of Proceedings 309 

On the annual conference level the commission cooperated with other boards and 
igencies in the sponsorship of the following: 

Orientation Workshop for Pastors New to the N. C. Conference, Methodist Build- 
ng, Raleigh, July 5-6, 1967 

DijJce Divinity School Summer Clinics, Duke University, Durham, July 17-28, 
L967. Chnice offered: Church Planning and Development, Campus Ministry, Pastoral 
2are, Preaching, and Theology. 

Pastors' Conference on Evangehsm, Methodist College, Fayetteville, August 29- 
il, 1967. Resource persons: Dr. Wilson O. Weldon, editor, The Upper Room; Dr. James 
N. Sells, executive secretary, Se. J. 

Significant new approaches in the service of tlie Commission on Tovra and Country 
vVork to local churches made their appearance on tlie program scene during the 1967- 
.968 conference year: 

( 1 ) The first, and hopefully a continuing series, of district committee on Youth 
services to the Churches, was organized in the Elizabeth City District, February 4, 
'968. The purpose of the committee is to help provide youth with service opportunities 
vithin the framework of the church, as autliorized in Report No. 5, page 310 of the 1967 
Conference Journal. 

(2)' Consultations on Churches with Small Memberships were held in the Elizabeth 
>ity and FayetteviUe Districts. Reports from these consultations indicate the need for 
■etter communication and understanding of churches in this category are at long last 
eing considered. 

The Commission on Town and Country Work of the North Carolina Conference of 
le United Methodist Church requests of each local church with less than two hundred 
nd fifty members that a Committee on Cooperation he elected by the Charge Confer- 
nce and hsted among other committees on the official Charge Conference roll. This 
;ommittee wiU work with the district superintendent and the district secretary of 
.'own and Country Work to discover new ways to strengthen the mission of the small 
lembership church. 

The first Methodist Rural Fellowship retreat was held in the Providence Church, near 
roldsboro, on February 27-28, 1968. The retreat proved to be beneficial to the thirty- 
ve ministers and laymen attending. The several sharing sessions were recorded and a 
'port of the findings made by the Reverend H. L. Harrell, president, revealed the hopes 
id aspirations, as well as many of the frustrations, often related to the rural church and 
s ministry. 

The following is given as information: There are presently operating within the 
3unds of the North Carolina Annual Conference the following Group Ministries: 
East Carteret Group Ministry — 1963-1968 
Caswell Group Ministry— 1966-1968 
There are two church and community workers currently engaged in the following 
eas of our conference: 

Salemburg area — Miss Bernice Ballance, worker 
Moore County area — Mrs. Edna Swain Williams, worker 
During the past seventeen years, which history will record as the "Garber Era" in the 
orth Carohna Conference, the Commission on Town and Country Work is grateful for 
e opportunity to have had a part in many of the progressive steps taken during these 
■ars of phenomenal growth. It is with a deep sense of love and appreciation we hold 
r the leadership of Bishop Paul Neff Garber over the past four quadrennia as the 
)iscopal leader of the North Carolina Annual Conference. The example he has set 
'fore us will continue to inspire us to "Give of our best to the Master" and to the cause 
united Methodism in the North Carolina Conference and throughout the world. For 
m and Mrs. Garber we pray the continuance of God's love and blessings upon them 
their active years of retirement.

REPORT OF BOARD OF COLLEGE VISITORS 

The Board of College Visitors of the North Carolina Annual Conference made it 
yearly visits to the Colleges in our Conference area in the month of March. We wer( 
greatly impressed by the growth, maturity and the advancements made by our school 
in the past year. 

Physical progress is most evident in all of our Colleges. A new dormitory is unde 
construction at Louisburg, to be ready for next year occupancy. The new Library a 
N. C. Wesleyan is in use since our last visit. At Methodist College the addition to thi 
Student Union, the new Auditorium and the Administration Building are nearing com 
pletion. 

In our visit with the students, faculty and administration of our colleges we dis , 
covered a wonderful degree of maturing — particularly in our two new colleges. Th( I 
atmosphere of being on a "trial run" is over and a settling down to the accomplishmen 
of a mission is most gratifying. The relationships between these three elements of ou 
colleges seems to be wholesome with respect for and consideration of each other. Thi 
absence of extremism attests to the fine type of young men and young women attendur 
our schools as well as a thorough Christian character permeating and undergirding ou 
institutions. 

We feel, however, that there is a recommendation of two which need consideration 
One of these is that further effort should be made by pastors and laymen to encouragi 
more of our best young people to attend our fine colleges. Pastors, laymen and group 
of youth are urged to acquaint themselves with the advantages of these Christian col 
leges by frequent visits to the campuses. Often the lower cost of state supported school 
is used as a reason for not attending our private colleges. A study of the advantage 
offered in a Christian atmosphere, individual attention and superior faculty would b 
readily apparent to the visitor of our campuses. 

Another recommendation would be a continued and increased financial support 
We do not want to have to price ourselves out of the student market nor do we wan 
to be in a position of not being able to attract the best of faculty leadership. These cai 
be avoided by our increased financial support of our colleges. 

Finally, we are proud of our colleges and the tasks they are doing. They are alread 
wielding a tremendous influence and a wholesome Christian witness in our area and ar 
deserving of the best efforts we can put forth in their behalf. 

We express our confidence in the integrity of the trustees and presidents and facult 
of our colleges.

REPORT OF COMMISSION ON CHRISTIAN VOCATIONS 

The Commission on Christian Vocations is charged with responsibility to interpn 
Christian Vocations in general, church-related occupations in particular, and the pastor^ 
ministry specifically. During this quadrennium our efforts have centered around thre 
basic considerations: deepening the spiritual disciplines of young people and adults t 
accept the Lordship of Jesus Christ; development of pastoral and parental encouragt 



Journal of Proceedings 311 

nent in helping individuals to understand the meaning of vocation and to respond to 
he needs of service; and conservation of decisions already made for church-related 
Occupations through more effective programs of counseling and guidance. 

II. PROGRESS REPORT FOR 1964-68 QUADRENNIUM 
During this quadrennium, 1964-68, we have sought to implement these goals in 
Ihe following ways: 

1. We encouraged each local church to organize and activate the Committee on 
Christian Vocations. 

2. We prepared Quarterly Conference Report Blanks to be used by the Local 
;;hurch Committee at the Fourth Quarterly Conference. 

3. We have sent each minister in the conference the booklet, Church-Related Oc- 
upations and Short Term Projects, each year. These were also sent to high school and 
ollege guidance personnel. 

4. We have cooperated with the Board of Ministerial Training and Qualifications 
1 promoting observance of Ministry Sunday each year. 

5. We have encouraged rallies and programs on Christian Vocations in the MYF 
oth on conference and district levels. One such venture was the "Explore Weekend" 
eld during this conference year. 

6. We sponsored tri-district "Bishop's Surveys on Christian Vocations", 1965-66, 
'ith Bishop Paul Garber, Rev. James Auman, Dr. Danny Lotz, and Mr. Albert Long 
isisting us. Approximately 800 people attended these meetings. 

7. We sponsored Christian Vocation Ralhes for high school juniors and seniors in 
366-67. There were three of these rallies held at Louisburg College, N. C. Wesleyan 
ollege, and Methodist College. 

8. Ten of our Commission members attended a training session at Lake Junaluska 
the beginning of this quadrennium; four attended a regional workshop in Roanoke, 

a., in 1966-67. 

9. This year, 1967-68, we have written some 5,000 high school and college students 
our conference indicating our interest in them and seeking to stimulate their interest 

church-related occupations. We have been ably assisted by the WSCS in this 
ideavor. 

10. This year, 1967-68, we sponsored a meeting of WSCS District Secretaries of 
issionary Personnel and District Directors of Christian Vocations to explore better 
ays of co-operation, record keeping, and conservation of decisions. 

11. We began a project in which we asked local churches to provide information 
garding summer jobs for college students. We think this offers opportunities to intro- 
ice college students to occupational opportunities in the church. The response has 
■en meager at this time; however, we think this project should be continued. 

12. We have emphasized Christian Vocations at the sessions of the N. C. Confer- 
ee by having speakers such as Dr. Thomas Langford, Bishop Nolan B. Harmon, and 
is year, Dr. John W. Johannaber. 

n. PLANS AND RECOMMENDATIONS 
As we look forward to the new quadrennium, we make the following recommenda- 
s to the new commission: 

1. We recommend that further attempts be made to activate Local Church Com- 
ttees; more effort be made at following up those who indicate interest in Church- 
ted occupations; continued use be made of the special Fourth Quarterly Report 

2. We recommend that this commission conduct "Campus Consultations on Church 
lated Occupations" on the campuses of Louisburg College, N. C. Wesleyan College, 
Jthodist College, East Carolina University, N. C. State University, and Chapel Hill- 

I'lke. Rev. Ed Beck has been invited to be the featured speaker at these meetings 
Mich we suggest be held in October or November 1968. The purpose of these meetings 
ito solicit the interest of college students for church-related occupations. 

3. We recommend that this commission explore a method of record keeping which 
^ll guarantee more adequate conservation of decisions made by young people to enter 
c arch-related vocations. 

4. We recommend better use of film strips and other audio-visual in our TRAFCO, 
Irary; we call to your attention the fact that two persons in our conference, Conrad 
(iss and Robert Givson, are certified lab instructors in the course "You and Your Life 
^)rk." 

5. We recommend that this commission co-operate with the Board of Education 
•ipromoting programs, rallies, etc., in which some emphasis is given to recruitment; 



312 North Carolina Annual Conference 

co-operation with the Board of Ministerial Training and Qualification in promoting the 
observance of "Ministry Sunday" should continue. 

6. We recommend that a listing of summer jobs in local churches be made and 
that these be distributed to college students seeking summer employment. 

7. We recommend that each year the commission order and distribute copies of 
Methodist Church Related Occupations and Short Term Projects. Copies should be sent 
to each minister in the conference and to all college and high school guidance personnel 
in our conference. 

8. We recommend that this commission invite the Board of Ministerial Training 
and Qualification to join it in exploring ways to interpret opportunities for service in 
the N. C. Conference to graduates of the Duke Divinity School. No such program now 
exists in our conference, while other conferences do conduct such a program. The time 
has come for oiu" conference to actively seek these graduates rather than assume they will 
come our way simply because the school is in the bounds of this annual conference. Such 
an efi^ort would afford an opportunity to clarify and strengthen the relationship betweer 
the N. C. Conference and the Duke Divinity School. 

9. We recommend that this commission explore the possibility of establishing a 
testing and guidance program for high school students who indicate interest in church- 
related occupations. This can be done in co-operation with one of our colleges. 

10. We recommend that local pastors and district directors cooperate with local 
school officials in promoting Christian Vocations by consultation with guidance coimse- 
lors, through Career Days, and by making Christian Vocations materials available to 
these counselors. 

III. WE EXPRESS OUR APPRECIATION TO: 

1. The presidents, staff, and students of our three colleges; the pastors and members 
of churches who have hosted our rallies. 

2. The Woman's Society of Christian Service for their assistance and for the 
scholarships which they make available to those entering church related occupations. 

3. The cabinet for their continued support and co-operation and especially foi 
their distribution and collection of the Fourth Quarterly Conference Report from the 
Local Church Committee on Christian Vocations. 

4. The Board of Ministerial Training and Qualifications, The Board of Education 
and all other conference boards and agencies who assist us with emphasis upon Christian 
Vocations. 

5. The Conference Board of Lay Activities for its generous "Lay Rally" offerings 
for scholarships for those entering church related occupations. During this year the fol- 
lowing amounts were given to this scholarship fund: Burlington District-$358. Durham 
District-$350.24, Elizabeth City District $274.64, Fayetteville District $511.01, Golds- 
boro District $375.31, Greenville District $419.43, New Bern District $268.32, Raleigl- 
District $459.62, Rocky Mount District $288.15, Sanford District $387.54, Wilmington 
District $279.80. 

6. Our district directors of Christian Vocations; H. H. Cameron, J. L. Hunter 
J. C. Alexander, Jr., J. S. Epperson, Dennis Ricks, W. T. Owens, H. W. Pearce, C. M 
Wooten, Frank E. Berry, J. A. Stames, L. A. Green, as well as the rest of our com 
mission. 

7. Bishop Paul N. Garber for his constant inspiration and assistance; the minister; 
and laymen of our conference who daily by their lives lead our youth into Christian anc 
church related occupations.

REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S SOCIETY OF CHRISTIAN SERVICE 

The Woman's Society of Christian Service with the Wesleyan Service Guild has ha( 
a good year, with apparent growth in many areas. 

Last June at Louisburg College a spiritual life retreat was held with 325 womei 
receiving enrichment as we were lead in meditation by Mrs. Lawrence Lacour and ii 
worship by Mrs. Walter McDonald, soloist. 

In the area of missionary education new vitality has come to us as the School o 
Christian Mission has undergone almost total transformation. This transformation begai; 
two years ago when the executive committee of the Women's Society voted to open th( 



Journal of Proceedings 313 

school to members of the Central Jurisdiction living in our area. The transformation was 
completed last summer when the Guild weekend of study became a conference-wide 
weekend of study, with both the weekend and the school open to all in the local church 
who carry responsibility for the program of study. The presence of many men and of 
Negro members of the Woman's Society has given our school "The new look". Last 
summer 650 attended the schools. 

In September, at Hayes Barton Church in Raleigh, we held a "World Understanding 
Workshop: Emphasis, Africa" with the Board of Christian Social Concerns and the 
Eastern District of the Carolina-Virginia Conference participating. This past winter 
and spring workshops have been held in the districts. 

In February aU conference officers and secretaries, all district presidents and a 
local woman from each district attended the Jurisdiction meeting in Birmingham. This 
meeting focused on the role of the local woman in the work of the Woman's Society. 

The annual meeting was held in Edenton St. Church in March with over 800 
women attending. The stimulating program was well received. At the pledge service 
we made otu largest pledge to missions, $208,000, an appropriate closing for our last 
meeting of the Woman's Society of Christian Service. 

We have been prepared for this day of union and merger in our Church not only 
by change and growth during this quadrennium but through our twenty-eight years 
of work in the Woman's Society and Guild. These have been wonderful rewarding years, 
years of planning, discarding, trying the new, years of ever widening service, years of ful- 
fillment. We have a great deal to offer The United Methodist Church; we will give 
responsibly and gladly, knowing that He who brought the Woman's Society of Christian 
Service to great fruition will also lead us as we enter the Women's Society of Christian 
Service in The United Methodist Church.

Mrs. J. E. Davis, Secretary 

REPORT OF COMMISSION ON WORLD SERVICE AND FINANCE 

No. 1 

The Commission on World Service and Finance is pleased with the financial response 
given by the churches of the North Carolina Conference during this quadrermium to 
undergird the program of Methodism vdthin our borders and beyond. The generous re- 
sponse of cmr people plus the wdse and efficient use of these gifts by the ConJFerence and 
its agents has enabled us to establish and maintain a sound financial base for our con- 
Ference work. 

During the church year we experienced a great loss in the death of Mr. Alonzo C. 
Edwards who had served on this commission almost eight years. We acknowledge with 
profound gratitude his able and faithful Christian service so generously rendered. His 
:;ontribution to the outstanding progress we have experienced has been most significant. 

The response to the Single Figure Asking has been most gratifying. We are grateful 
to our fellow Methodists and to God that we can make with confidence, as we enter the 
new quadrermium, the following recommendations which include a large increase in 
World Service giving and some increases for several conference programs: 

The Askings by Districts for 1968-1969 are shown in Column A, and Askings for

4. Ministers' Retirement Fund and Emergency Aid Fund.

for less than the 8% minimum increase agreed upon and no charge for more than thei 
14% maximum increase agreed upon for the Conference year 1968-69. 

V. 

We pay highest tribute to Mr. Marvin J. Cowell for the faithful, dedicated, efficient, 
and gracious manner in which he has served our Conference as die Conference Treas-s 
urer for the past 15 years. During this period of time, tremendous strides have been madel 
in the financial life of our Conference. With his help, the Central Treasury was estab- 
lished and under his cautious and wise guidance these pooled funds have earned for 
our Conference in excess of $7CK),C00. These earnings have increased greatly the Chris- 
tian service which our Conference has been able to render. Also, the credit base made 
possible by the General Treasury has been of great economic value for our Conference 
many of her progressive steps, as financing the Methodist Building, the creation of the 
Department of Gifts and Wills, and providing help for our new colleges at a very crucial 
point. 

In 1938, Mr. Cowell was elected to the Budget Committee of the North Carolina 
Conference. Later this committee became the Commission on World Service and Fi- 
nance, of which he was elected secretary in 1941. He has been continuously and closely 
associated with the financial life of our Conference for 30 years and is without doubt 
the most knowledgeable person on Conference financial affairs. 

Upon his retirement as conference treasurer we recognize Mr. Cowell's tremendous, 
contribution to our Conference and our great indebtedness to him as our first full-time 
conference treasurer and the one who has established for us a sohd foundation upon 
which we can continue to build. We pray God's blessing ujxjn him. " 

VI. 

Ministers' Blue Cross Plan. The Commission on World Service and Finance rec- 
ommends that this plan specifically include the district superintendents with the District 
Work Fimd to bear the expense of two quarterly premimns and the plan also to include 
other traveling ministers appointed to positions with the Boards, agencies, and institu- 
tions with the board, agency or institution paying two of the quarterly premimns. We 
call attention to the fact that it is provided that the church or charge pay the premiums 



Journal of Proceedings 317 

due October 1 and April 1. The minister bears the responsibihty to see that the church 
treasurer or treasurer(s) make payments on or before October 1 and April 1; likewise 
the minister bears the responsibility to make his own payment on or before January 1 
and July 1. The group contract provides for no grace period. In completing the statistical 
report to Annual Conference, the local church payment will be reported under Item 54, 
"Other Current Expenses." 

VII. 
LIMITING AND SUPPLEMENTING PROVISIONS RELATING TO THE BUDGET 

1. District Superintendents' Fund. 

(a) The salary of each of the district superintendents shall be set at $11,500.00 
including travel. Such part of said salary that is paid out by such district superintendent 
to cover the actual costs of all those utihties applicable to the operation and maintenance 
of his district parsonage is hereby assigned as housing expense not to exceed the sum 
of $800.00 for heat, water, electrical services and residential telephone. We recommend 
that all districts assume this expense. 

(b) To provide for Cabinet meeting expenses. 

(c) We recommend that beginning with the conference year 1968-1969 and 
continuing each year thereafter, an annual appropriation equal to twelve times the cur- 
rent annuity rate be made to the Conference Board of Pensions for each district, super- 
intendent. 

2. We approve the use of an amount up to $3,000 to be provided by each district 
for the district superintendent for secretarial help and promotion of the district program. 

3. The Commission recommends that each person who has authority to draw checks 
against an account of a conference agency be required to present annually to the full 
membership of his agency a complete list of all checks drawn, justifying all checks with 
the budget approved by his agency. 

4. The Commission recommends that each agency whose accounts are not audited 
in the treasurer's office be required to have an annual audit made and furnish this com- 
mission with a copy of it. 

5. Under the Church Extension Fund the first $45,000 is earmarked to be paid to 
tihe Board of Missions, Inc. for the revolving fund to be used for loans to build chm-ches 
and/or acquire choice sites for new congregations or to repay money borrowed by Board 
of Missions, Inc. 

6. The Commission recommends that no conference agency's budget incorporate 
ivithin its funds to be appropriated to a non-conference agency, without specific approval 
of the North Carolina Annual Conference. 

7. We recommend that monies paid by charges toward the Single Figure Asking be 
reported to the statistician by the Conference Treasurer and that all other funds paid by 
the local church to be reported in the Pastor's RejxDrt, Table # II. 

VIII. 

We recommend approval of the requests of the following agencies for the privilege 
of soliciting funds throughout the conference. 

1. Christmas Offering 1968 for District Superintendents' program and/or projects 
should be clearly defined in plenty of time to have successful promotion. 

2. The Board of Missions for the promotion of the Church Extension Ten Dollar 
Club. 

3. That the Board of Education be authorized to solicit from church groups and 
individuals, materials and money for specific projects for the four camps of the North 
Carolina Conference. 

4. Interconference Commission on Campus Ministry for special gifts for the benefit 
of special works in the state-supported institutions. 

5. Methodist Retirement Homes, Incorporated, for the privilege of private solicitation 
and receipt of such donations as may be directed thereto. 

6. The Methodist Home for Children for the privilege of private sohcitation and re- 
ceipt of such donations as may be directed thereto. 

7. The Methodist Foundation, Inc., as provided in its charter. 

8. The Tovra and Country Commission, Rural Church Fund, for the privilege of 
private solicitation and receipt of such donations as may be directed thereto. 



318 North Carolina Annual Conference 

IX. 

We recommend to charge or church treasiirers that they set up a schedule for remit- 
ting at a stated time each month and to close their year as early as possible. Final remit- 
tance should be mailed by Monday one week preceding the opening of Conference. By 
use of our data-processing equipment, in this time, we can summarize our current fund 
receipts and present this to our people at our Annual Conference session. 

We recommend that local churches remit in eleven installments commencing on the 
first Monday in July and terminating the Monday preceding conference. They can be 
exactly or approximately equal. It simplifies the work of the local chiurch treasurer for 
these periodic remittances to include one or several items in whole or in part ratihei 
than to remit one-eleventh of each and every item. 

The pastors bear responsibility to check with their local treasurers for full remittance 
of all budgeted items and all funds collected as specials and to harmonize their reports 
to Annual Conference with Conference Treasurer's acknowledgments both received and 
pending. Pastors should compare and keep on file all acknowledgments and Data Pro- 
cessing reports from the conference treasurer. Errors, if detected, should be reported. 

We report the issuance of a Fidelity Bond in Employers Mutual Casualty Company 
of Des Moines, Iowa, to cover the conference treasurer in the amoiuit of $100,000.00 
and to cover the assistant treasurer in the amount of $25,000.00; others to a minimum of 
$10,000.00 in said ofi^ice. Also, to cover others handling funds: Superintendent of Meth- 
odist Retirement Homes, Inc., $50,000.00; Administrative Assistant of Methodist Retire- 
ment Homes, Inc., $50,000.00; and others to the amount of $10,000.00 in various offices. 
Executive Secretary, Board of Missions, Inc., $50,000.00; Inter-conference Commission 
on Campus Ministry Treasurer, $35,000.00. 

We recommend the continuation of A. M. Pullen & Company as auditors. 

In accordance with the action of the 1965 Aimual Conference, the closing dates for 
om- conference fiscal year will be as follows: 

1968 — June 8 

1969 — May 31 

We recommend that the president, the vice-president and secretary of the Commis- 
sion and the conference treasurer shall serve as the executive committee of the Conunis- 
sion on World Service and Finance. 

The Commission nominates Charles K. McAdams for the office of conference treas- 
luer, and Mrs. Eda M. Rogers, Assistant Conference Treasiuer.

We recommend that the Conference fiscal year close May 31, 1969. However, we 
call attention to the fact that the General Conference has changed the fiscal year of the 
general church to close December 31. In the light of this change, we request all churches 
to remit 7/12ths of the "Single Figure Acceptance" by December 31 so tlic Conference 
can meet its commitment, and we recommend thta the Commission on World Service 
and Finance study carefully the effect upon our Conference of the General Church's ac- 
tion to establish the calendar year as its fiscal year and to make appropriate recommen- 
dations at the next regular session of the Annual Conference. 

We call attention to the fact that the pastor's salary as set by a charge's Quarterly 
Conference si for a conference year: that is, from one session of the Annual Confreence 
r> to the next session of the Annual Conference. In keeping with our recommendation that 
the Conference fiscal year close May 31, we recommend that each Charge pay the sal- 
ary promised the pastor for the Conference year by that date.

REPORT OF COMMISSION ON WORSHIP 

Throughout this quadrennium, your Commission on Worship has tried to be sensi- 
tive both to our historic Methodist usages in worship and to the demands of today's 
mobile and universal culture. We have delighted in seeing fresh interest in the worship 
life of the Church and have engaged in those tasks that seemed best to meet the needs 
underlined by this interest. 

Our Fall Planning Meeting in Stantonsburg was devoted to a study of the literature 
in the field of Christian funerals. Thus the foundation was laid for the series of Seminars 
on the Funeral. 

In co-operation with the chaplains of the Duke University Medical Center, the 
Commission did sponsor in each district a Seminar on the Funeral. More than four 
hundred ministers and laymen were reached by these sessions, dealing with the grief 
(experience, relationships between clergymen and funeral directors, and the funeral 
service. Copies of the study book are available from the Secretary. 

Just before Palm Sunday, more than thirteen hundred boys and girls from Confirma- 
tion Classes across the conference participated in the Bishop's Meeting with Young 
Methodists. This year we expanded to three such meetings: Edenton Street Chirrch, 
Raleigh; St. James Church, Greenville; and Haymount Church, Fayetteville. Bishop 
Garber spoke on "Full and Responsible Membership" and then spent time with the 
children in informal, smaller groups. 

Our recommendation for the new conference year include: 

( 1 ) A Planning Meeting is to be held at Camp Rockfish, September 19-20, 1968, 

(2) From January 20, 1969 to January 29, 1969, we shall conduct across the 
conference a series of five Seminars on the Wedding. 

(3) We shall sponsor again the Bishop's Meeting with Young Methodists, with 
sessions to be at Raleigh on March 15, 1969, at Greenville on March 22, 1969, and at 
Fayetteville on March 29, 1969. 

(4) We encourage study experiences on the local level, to examine the worship life 
of our congregations, both in terms of the Sunday service and the Holy Communion, 
and the occasional services.

IN APPRECIATION 

I began my ministry in the North Carolina Annual Conference in 1940. In the 1940' 
and in 1950, I was distressed to see deterioration throughout the Conference. Churchc 
were being closed. Our only college was at the point of closing. Ministerial morale W3 
poor. We were resigned to retrogression. 

In 1951, Paul Neff Garber became our episcopal leader. Immediately, the bisho 
went to work on various progressive projects. The tide turned. The Conference deve 
oped the "movement mind." Retrogression changed to progression. The institution; 
achievements are visible and valuable. Ministerial morale is greatly improved. Layme 
and laywomen, in the work of the local churches and of the Conference, are undertal 
ing increasingly their rightful share of leadership. The Conference has a new spirit. 

Bishop Horace M. DuBose, in his book titled Francis Asbury, published in 190< 
stated on page 113: 

"The careful student may discover in the destiny-used men of aU times a quality ( 
personaHty which suggests a truer philosophical basis of history than do the data a: 
ranged by either Buckle or Guizot. That quality is the ability of the actor in history n( 
only to see the supreme opportunity when it is presented, but to rise to the height of i 
tests and requirements. This was the quality
